Follow in the footsteps of British Mountaineering Legend Rebecca Stephens

On the 17th May 1993 Rebecca Stephens became the first British woman to climb Mt. Everest and on the 17th May 2014 exactly 21 years later Rebecca took part in the 2014 Snowdon 500 Challenge to support prostate cancer research. Rebecca said "When someone is diagnosed with cancer the news is devastating for the individuals concerned and their family and friends. I'm thrilled to be supporting the Snowdon 500 Challenge because it provides an opportunity to do something positive about it. The Snowdon 500 Challenge is all about bringing people together to take part in what is an exciting and unique Charity Challenge - and of course for some climbing the mountain will be their personal EverestĒ.

What itís 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 Ė on average thatís at least one  death every hour  on every day. Itís 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.
