Jessica Hope Challenge: 3 Peaks, 3 Wheels, 3 Days

In July I will be attempting to conquer Ben Nevis, Skiddaw and Snowdon, 3 of the highest peaks in Britain.

This isn’t the standard 3 Peak Challenge attempted and completed by thousands of people a year. I was born with spina bifida and use a wheelchair. RGK have donated an all terrain hand cycle so the challenge can be completed unaided.

I have one reason for doing this. In April 2011 a beautiful 14 year old girl was a bridesmaid at the wedding of mine and my wife’s. One year later our beautiful bridesmaid was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour. In February of 2013 Jessica Hope Gauntley died after a 10 month battle.

Jessie loved the mountains and completed her DofE Silver Expedition whilst undergoing chemotherapy. This is a challenge for Jess which I will be completing with a support team of colleagues, friends, Jess’s father and youngest brother Tom.

We all thank you for your support.
