Three Peaks Challenge
On Sunday 9 July, 13 students and five members of staff from QM will set off on a four day adventure to climb the three highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland. First they will tackle Mount Snowdon in North Wales, then Scafell Pike in the Lake District and finally, but by no means least, Ben Nevis in Scotland. The girls have each chosen their own charity to support which will give them the motivation they need to accomplish this feat.
The group completed their first training walk on Sunday 7 May with an 11 mile route in Nidderdale. The route took the girls to a high point of 400 metres at the Coldstones Cut and was a thorough test of strength and stamina – a test they all passed, cheerfully and confidently. The girls are looking forward to their second and final training walk in June. This is not the first time that the QM girls have set themselve a challenge like this – last year they raised over £3,000 for Project Mala with a coast to coast cycle challenge.
