She has sailed the Southern seas to the South Pole and competed in an eight day eco-challenge with polar explorers Ranulph Fiennes and Dr Mike Stroud. Most recently Rebecca crossed the Island of South Georgia in the footsteps of Sir Ernest Shackleton.  Participants signing up for the Snowdon 500 Challenge or the Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge will have the chance of meeting Rebecca who will also be providing an illustrated  talk / slideshow at our celebration Saturday evening event at the Royal Victoria Hotel.

Some Feedback from Last Year’s Events

Kevin Wooldridge...... I found the Snowdon 500 Challenge event very inspiring. Many thanks to the team involved for organising and administrating this event so well 

Hannah Williams........I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the chance to take part in the Three Peaks Challenge. This has been a real challenge for me as I didn't think I would have the stamina to climb one mountain, never mind three. What kept me going was the thought that I was helping raise money for this worthwhile cause, to try and help people like my dad and uncle. 

Martyn Jordan.....Once again, very well organised with highly detailed information. It would give anyone the confidence to undertake the challenge if sufficiently fit and equipped. (Welsh 3 Peaks) 

Gordon Foster..... I want to say very well done to you and all your helpers on organising a very professionally run event

What it’s all About  

In the UK more than 30,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually and around 10,000 men die of this terrible disease – on average that’s at least one  death every hour  on every day. It’s because prostate cancer affects so many men and their families / friends that we organise the Snowdon 500 & Welsh 3 Peaks Challenges as a way of making more people aware of this killer disease and to raise the funds that are essential to support the research being carried out to find ways of improving the treatment of this killer disease and ultimately to find a cure.
