Time completed: 11 hours 51 minutes.
About the group
We’re employees of Cheetham Hill Construction, a Bury based civil engineering company. As a group of employees, we wanted to set a company challenge and after various discussions, we decided to give the Yorkshire Three Peaks a crack. The maximum walking distance many of our team complete weekly equals walking to the car then walking 10m to the office, so this challenge is no mean feat.

Fundraising for The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity
Joshua was 3 ½ when he was diagnosed with a brain stem tumour. Life-saving surgery to remove the tumour left Josh with serious post-operative complications. On Josh’s 13th Birthday in 2013, Josh and his mum, Dawn, launched the Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity with the aim of helping other families living with childhood brain tumours and post-operative complications. The charity, The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity, went on to raise £100,000 in its first year of existence. From Christmas 2013 Dawn was told seven times in eight months her son only had 48 hours to live. Josh defied all odds, and turned 14 in August of 2014 but sadly died in November.
