The National Three Peaks Challenge is an event in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales, all within 24 hours. Over the 24 hour period, the graduates climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, walking a horizontal distance of 26 miles and a vertical distance of 3000 metres, whilst also driving 470 miles!
The Mitie graduates have been keen volunteers with the Mitie Foundation, experiencing first-hand the inspiring work that we do to support so many people. Therefore they kindly decided to allocate their fundraising to the projects we work on and run across the country.
On the day, the graduates started the challenge in the early hours of the morning at the foot of Ben Nevis, before travelling down to Scafell Pike and then finally climbing Snowdon the following morning - hopefully returning to their minibus inside the 24 hour target and in time for a celebratory photo.
We want to say a massive thank you for all their hard work in fundraising and in actually climbing the mountains. Well done!
