The Boothstown Boys take on the National 3 Peaks Challenge in aid of 3 great causes including the Steve Prescott Foundation.
We are a group of friends from a village on the outskirts of Salford, called Boothstown. Some of us have known each other since we were 4 years old and now; as we approach the ripe old age of 40, we are really excited about completing this challenge together.
The Boothstown Boys are....
Tony Grindley, Dave Edmondson, Joe Steed, Paul Nuttall, Andrew Barlow, James Shahhet, Steve Devlin, Daniel Rogers, Marcus Partington, Gary Glewis, Harry Steed, John Downey (Driver) and Dave Paskin (Driver)
The National 3 Peaks Challenge involves climbing the 3 highest peaks in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon). The 24 hour challenge will start in Scotland on Friday the 11th of July and this is our expected schedule.
6am Start Ben Nevis
11am Finish Ben Nevis and start drive to Scafell Pike
5pm Arrive and start climbing Scafell Pike
9pm Finish Scafell Pike and start drive to Snowdon
2am Arrive and start climbing Snowdon
6am Finish Snowdon, and complete challenge
James Shahhett said, "Over the years of attending Horizon Group meetings, I've been pretty inspired (as I'm sure we all have) by a certain group member (Mike Denning) who regularly pushes his body to the limit in aid of the charity close to his heart! Therefore I felt inspired to round up 10 of my pals and do something positive - and hopefully this will be the first of many more challenges to come!"
All monies raised will be split equally between the following 3 charities:
- Cancer Research UK
- Steve Prescott Foundation
- St Ann's Hospice
