ABC 3 Peaks World Record Attempt in Support of Donna Louise Children’s Hospice
At ABC Managed Services, we like to think we’re at the peak of our game. But, we’re always looking for new mountains to climb!
So when Managing Director, Steve Burgess, said to our staff, “How about trying the 3 Peaks Challenge, for charity?” he was overwhelmed with applicants.
That’s why not one, but two teams of ABC colleagues have accepted The Three Peaks Challenge. We’ll be scaling the highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales. And it’s all in support of the incredible work done by The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.
Our teams will be walking 23 miles (37 km), whilst climbing up a total height of 10,052 feet (3,064 metres). The total driving distance between The Peaks is 462 miles (743 km).
And that’s not all – ABC’s fit and healthy bunch are not only going to climb the three peaks – we’re going to do it in record time!
The record for completing the climb and the drive between – is 14 hours and 36 minutes. We’re planning to smash that record!
So, we’ll need the speed of Superman, travelling like a bullet, to get us between the peaks – and the grit of Sly Stallone to get us up them. It’s gonna be a real cliffhanger!
Steve Burgess added: “At ABC, we pride ourselves on having a versatile and happy workforce who enjoy rising to challenges like this. They’re great for team building – and great for charity.”
So, here’s how you can help inspire our time to reach the top. The more you can donate, the harder and faster we’ll climb.
The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice know that the families of children with life-limiting conditions have a mountain to climb every single day. So help us to help them make it to the top.
More about Donna Louise
Since being established in 1999, The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice provides respite care and so much more, to children and young adults living with life-limiting conditions, as well as to their families.
ABC Managing Director, Steve Burgess said: “I feel very privileged to be involved in raising much needed funding and highlighting the amazing work Donna Louise does”.
“Donna Louise adds light at the darkest hour to our children, young people and families in need. They truly care about making a difference.”– Steve Burgess, ABC MD
The Donna Louise team recognise that caring for a child or young adult with complex needs is an uphill struggle for any family, so they offer all-important respite breaks, allowing families to recharge their batteries while their loved ones are happy and safe.
Indeed, those young people who stay at The Donna Louise’s custom-built facility say it’s like “being on holiday”.
