Team Libertine take on The Thee Peaks

This year Libertine has joined CASCAID, a charity initiative that brings the asset management community together with the goal of raising £1 million for Cancer Research UK in 2017.

As part of the challenge, fifteen of us will be taking on the three highest mountains in the UK in July, climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales, all in just 24 hours.

It’s a gruelling test of stamina, fitness and endurance, reaching over 1,345 m above sea level before midday. We then race to Cumbria to tackle the hardest peak of the challenge, followed by Mt Snowdon, Wales, which we will begin at approximately 2am. By 7am the following morning we will have covered the equivalent of a marathon and climbed almost 10,000 feet – running on very little sleep!

With less than two months to go, preparation is in full swing… so expect the pestering emails – we will be hassling you for your sponsorship money!

We’re looking to raise £10,000 to contribute to the overall CASCAID total. If you’d like to support Team Libertine and donate, we’d be most grateful, all amounts appreciated. Please follow the link below for details on how to donate.
