About the group

Two brothers taking on the Three Peaks Challenge. Weʼre undertaking the challenge in order to raise money to help a mother with terminal cancer in providing support for her disabled son's future.

Our fundraising page.

Last year, our close family friend Jackie Barnett was unfortunately diagnosed with terminal cancer. Jackie has selflessly centred the past 22 years of her life on providing for her son, Owen, who has cerebral palsy. Since her diagnosis, Jackie’s only focus has been ensuring Owen has all the support and security he needs to live out his life with ease. Our youngest brother, Aaron, attends disability daycare with Owen, furthering our proximity to this cause.

In June, my brother (Morgan) and I have decided to take on the Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales within 48 hours. The money raised will be going towards helping Jackie in providing a life of fulfilment for Owen.

Owen produces miles of smiles on a daily basis; however, this is one of the few things he is able to do for himself. For all other aspects of life, Owen is dependent on others, most notably me. My greatest concern is his happiness and security. Owen is a very sociable young man, who deserves to enjoy experiences with his peer. - Jackie (Mother) - October, 2018

Our challenge will be taking us across all 3 nations of Great Britain, setting off from our home in Worcester on a 440-mile drive for the Scottish Highlands. Our challenge will commence with Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. From here we will travel south across the border for the Lake District’s Scafell Pike, before moving on to our challenge’s conclusion in the Snowdonia National Park.

Challenge registration number: 227014

This challenge took place on Thursday, 20 June, 2019.

Time completed: 57 hours 38 minutes.
