On 18th September a team of supporters completed the first-ever Arthritis Action Trek Snowdon.
The 7 mile hike saw the team ascend 2,372 feet up the mountain, in unpredictable weather. The incredible views from the summit were a beautiful reward for the team, who have raised over £1,480 to help improve the lives of more people living with arthritis in the UK. You can still support the fundraiser on our Just Giving page.
Western Power Distribution Engineer Ryan, who completed the trek alongside partner Jennet and their dog Coco, said:
“Climbing or scaling a mountain can seem daunting on paper but when you’re surrounded by like-minded people who share the same values, that’s half the battle. No matter your age, perceived lack of physical ability or nagging self-doubt anyone can complete the Trek and meet new people & make new friends during the process. The opportunity to raise money for a great cause and gain a rewarding sense of achievement at the same time is definitely a draw to take part in the Trek.”
This event was sponsored by our partner, Western Power Distribution. Learn more about our partnership here.
