Join the British Heart Foundation in the fight for every heartbeat
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on people in Yorkshire to take part in their first ever Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 11 July and join the fight against heart disease. Places for the event are going fast and the BHF are urging people to register now to avoid missing out on a place.
Join 650 people and help raise much needed funds for essential research which could create a better future for so many – from babies born with heart defects, to the millions of adults affected by heart disease.
Starting from Horton in Ribblesdale sports pavilion located at the foot of Pen-y-ghent, soak up the amazing views from all three peaks, while making every step count for the nation’s heart charity.
Helen Wright, Regional Event Organiser for the BHF said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be organising the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge for the sixth year. Hundreds of people have already signed up, so we’d like to urge people to get involved quickly if they don’t want to miss out on a place.
“Heart disease devastates too many lives, killing almost 15,000 a year in Yorkshire and Humberside alone, so it’s vital that we all get behind the fight to find a breakthrough to eradicate this deadly disease and the misery it brings.”
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes in 24 miles of the glorious Yorkshire Dales and around 3000ft of climbing up Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in 12 hours to raise urgently needed funds for the nation’s heart charity.
