3 Peaks in Honour of Neil Botes
This challenge took place on Saturday, 22 July, 2017.
Time completed: 25 hours 55 minutes.
About the group
Neil, was one of the kindest, most humble, friendliest people that we have ever met. Unfortunately, like a lot of young people these days Neil suffered from depression and was unable to find the support he required. This led to him taking his own life on the 25th July 2016.
This was the most heartbreaking thing that we have ever had to deal with as a friendship group and something that we want to help prevent others from having to experience.
Therefore we have decided to band together on the anniversary of his death and do something overwhelmingly positive. We want to give back and support three fantastic causes.
