Climbing Peaks for Charity!

Cllr Annie Brewster (Back row, 4th from left) meets some of those who will attempt the Three Peaks Challenge.

A group of mainly novice walkers will attempt to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in 24 hours, to hopefully raise £10,000 for the charity Special Olympics St Albans (SOSA).

Special Olympics St Albans parents, 1-Life employees from the St Albans Sport and Health Team and a group of people made up of St Albans City and District Council employees, will come together on the 8th and 9th July 2016 to tackle the tough 3-Peak Challenge for SOSA.  (The charity provides weekly sporting and community initiatives for those with a learning disability ages 7 years and over).

 

The end total will contribute to a team of 65 athletes attending the 2017 Special Olympics National Summer Games in 2017.

 

There are a number of people behind the logistics of this expedition, one of whom is Councillor Annie Brewster, ‎Cabinet Portfolio Holder at St Albans District Council for Sport, Leisure and Heritage.  Councillor Brewster comments, “SOSA is a fantastic charity that provides amazing opportunities for its many athletes who have a learning disability.  The 25 brave walkers involved in the expedition are already pounding the streets in preparation for this most taxing challenge. I wish them well and hope the target of £10 000 is reached.”
