Yorkshire Three Peaks
We are inviting you to take on the glorious Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge where you will cover 24 miles and 5,000 feet, pushing yourself to reach all three of Yorkshire's highest peaks, in just one day!
Pull on your hiking boots to face rocky terrain, steep climbing and thousands of steps, while trekking through the heart of Yorkshire's majestic scenery (including the famous Ribblehead Viaduct), all to raise vital funds to support local people living with life limiting illnesses.
Starting early Saturday morning, you will start your challenge in Horton-in-Ribblehead and will begin by trekking up to the summit of Ingleborough (723m). You'll then tackle Pen-y-ghent (694m) before taking on the highest peak in Yorkshire: Whernside (736m). The route is fully supported with mountain guides, and we will provide you with full fundraising support to help you complete your challenge for Saint Francis Hospice.
Take on the three peaks challenge like Laura did, so we can care for more patients like her Dad, Denis.
Laura's dad, Denis, was cared for by our Hospice at Home nurses for the last few days of his life.
Laura was inspired to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge after the care and support she received from the Hospice.
She says, "Julie was just unbelievable. We had so much trust in her. She helped us to understand what was happening with Dad and what to expect.
"She even stayed with us after her shift ended because she didn't want to leave us on our own."
