BASC National 3 Peaks Challenge
About the group
This group is made up of a number of colleagues from the BASC (British Association for Shooting & Conservation) who work across a number of different departments. We vary in age but all come with bags of enthusiasm for taking on this challenge. Previous to taking on this challenge each individual had different levels of experience (we have an ex marine) but all have trained super hard in the lead up to taking on the 3 peaks. We are strong, determined and most of all set to have a bloody good time.

Fundraising for Motor Neurone Disease Association
Every week in the UK 35 people are diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND). In that same week, another 35 people will die of the disease. Average life expectancy from diagnosis is two years. Everyone thinks of Professor Stephen Hawking, but he is the rare exception, not the rule. Only 10% of sufferers live for more than 5 years.
So, when one of your colleagues is diagnosed with MND, it's easy to feel totally helpless.
The Motor Neurone Disease Association funds vital research into treatments and hopes, like all of us, that eventually a cure can be found.
To support the good work of that charity, and as a mark of solidarity with one of our colleagues, several members of the British Association of Shooting and Conservation (BASC) are embarking upon a sponsored National Three Peaks Challenge; climbing the highest Peaks of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours – literally rising to the challenge!
