3 Peaks, 5 Lads.... Team Teddy

About the group

Marc Summers - The reason all the others have been roped into it! I kick started this all off as i wanted to do something to help raise money for SSNAP in memory of my son Teddy who died 2 years ago this June.
Dan Allen - Has been a brilliant support to me and the charity over the last couple of years and has always wanted to take on this challenge.
Gareth Jones - A human hiking machine who's going to drag us all up and down these 3 peaks
Paul Skelton - Wants to prove that Vegan's can climb mountains as well!
Darren Young - A footballer who unwittingly got convinced that this would be a great idea and now can't back out!

Fundraising for SSNAP (Support for Sick Newborn and their Parents)

On Saturday 27th May 2017, a week before what would have been my son Teddy's 2nd birthday, a team of 5 guys are attempting to complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge in under 24 hours to raise money for SSNAP (suppoprt for sick newborns and their parents), and to celebrate Teddy's 2nd birthday.

When Teddy was born, he was very poorly. He spent the next 36 hours in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. Despite the very best care from all the staff in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, we lost our Teddy in the early hours of Saturday 6th June.

Everyone connected to the NICU were wonderful both in looking after Teddy, and in supporting us as a family. Our aim is to raise money for SSNAP so that they can carry on providing other families needing the same help we had, and the same level of care and support as Teddy did. Our long term aim is to raise £100,000 for SSNAP which would buy a fully kitted out intensive care cot for the ward - just like the one Teddy was in.
