Representatives from two companies in Boston are to take on the national Three Peaks challenge.
Thea Cox and Dean Grainger from Thea Cox Mortgages, and Harry Drury from Thomas Campbell estate agents, are climbing Britain’s highest peaks for charity.
Their journey begins tomorrow and ends on Monday, with all money raised going to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Harry said: “The challenge is going to be one of the most physically challenging I have taken part in to date, but I am sure that it will be nothing in comparison to what the people we are raising money for go through.”
The challenge involves climbing mountains in locations across the United Kingdom – Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland.
Thea said: “It is going to be a tough challenge but for an extremely worthy cause. Recently cancer has affected a schoolfriend, and talking to her first hand shows the inner strength and the impact it has on her everyday life. It is heartbreaking.”
Harry added: “I do not know a single person who has not been affected in some way by cancer. It does not just have a physical impact on a person, but a mental impact on them and indeed the people around them. It changes everything.”
To make sure that everyone can track their journey and keep up to date with the group’s progress, Thea, Dean and Harry will be keeping photo and video diaries throughout the challenge. The team will be sharing their posts on their respective companies’ Facebook pages.
