Polly Barron's story -
Myself and my wonderful friends and taking on the Three Peaks challenge to climb the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

Cancer is super crap and has affected so many of us. My personal encounter with it was when it hit my hero, my dad earlier in the year. He is the strongest person I know and being a tri athlete himself, he was the last person I expected to get cancer. It's taught me that cancer doesn't discriminate and doesn't care who you are or what you do. It has also taught me how important family and friends are and what people can achieve when they work together. My dad took his diagnosis head on and stayed solution focused throughout and with a full prostate removal and a shitty recovery he now has the all clear and is back and better than ever.

He stood and fought it and now I stand with my friends to say thank you for all your research and care to Prostate Cancer UK for saving my dad and Pops to my little boy and we want to smash our target and raise as much as we can so someone else can have the opportunity to say thanks for saving their daddy too!

Please help us raise as much funds as possible and wish us well on our crazy adventure! I'm not sure our legs are that happy with the idea but Three Peaks here we come!

Thank you
