This summer, the Managing Director of Axis Recruitment is gathering his friends to take part in a very special hike, in order to raise much-needed money for charitable causes.
On the 4th of July 2011, Glen Walsh of Axis Recruitment will be leaving the comfort and warmth of his desk behind in order to attempt the National Three Peaks Challenge, which involves scaling the three highest mountains in Britain: Scaffell Pike (978m), Snowdon (1085m) and Ben Nevis (1344m), in just 24 hours!
The National Three Peaks Challenge involves a total of around 26 miles of mountain ascent and descent, plus 465 miles of travel in between.
But Glen won’t be facing this gruelling task alone. The head of the Chester-based recruitment company will be joined by six of his closest friends. Together, they will be attempting to climb to the top of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in just one day. It proves likely to be a gruelling task, so why are Glen and his friends putting themselves through it?
Glen, plus Gary O’Reilly, Peter Heaney, Dave Dennehy, Mark Abbott, Lee Lynch, Robin Crimes and Darren Adams, also known as ‘The Chester Boys,’ are taking part in the National Three Peaks Challenge in order to raise funds for several charitable organisations.
• Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey (registered charity No. 1008765)
• Claire House Children’s Hospice (registered charity No. 1004058)
• Hospice of the Good Shepherd (registered charity No. 515516)
• Cancer Research UK (registered charity No. 1089464)
• Leukemia & Lymphoma Research (registered charity No. 216032)
All of these good causes will benefit from the money raised by the Chester Boys, who are also being supported by Axis Recruitment.
By taking part in this potentially exhausting excursion, Glen and his team of intrepid mountaineers will be helping sick children and adults, plus their families to live in relative comfort, and help towards groundbreaking research that aims to stamp out these dreadful diseases once and for all.
The Chester Boys will be starting their quest at the base of Ben Nevis in Western Scotland, before moving onto Scafell Pike in Northern England and ending at the base of Snowdon, in North Western Wales.
With the invaluable support of their friends, families, local Chester businesses, including Axis Recruitment plus many of the wonderful general public, Glen and his friends aim to raise a significant amount of money for their five chosen charities.
Axis Recruitment would like to wish Glen and the Chester Boys all the very best of luck and success with their mission, and to wish them all a very speedy recovery upon their return from what is sure to be a physically testing 24 hours. Photographic evidence of their National Three Peaks Challenge attempt will be posted on the Axis Recruitment website as soon as Glen is returned safely back to us.
