The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the highest mountain in England, Scotland and Wales and doing it all in 24 hours or under.

It is an incredibly tough challenge yet every year between late Spring and early Autumn there are friends taking on this challenge and raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for their chosen charity.

We are here proposing that we take this challenge on in 2018 with a target of raising 2,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities. However, we will do the challenge in a totally different way, a way nobody has done before.

Are you up for being a part of it ? Are you up for  supporting the team ?

Our team will be made up of between eight and twelve members. It is usual for teams undertaking the challenge to be friends who set out with a common purpose. As we build out team ALL WILL BE COMPLETE STRANGERS. When everyone meets up for the first time, nobody will know anyone, all will be nervous and wondering how it will all turn out. By the time the first foot is set on the first ascent all will have become strong friends with a friendship that will last for the rest of their lives.

We would like to have TWO teams to actually climb the three mountains each consisting of between four and six people.

Perhaps the hardest part of the challenge is to move from Snowdon in Wales to Scafell Pike in England and on to Ben Nevis in Scotland - negotiating the roads and traffic, moving the team quickly and safely and keeping within the speed limits. We will find two volunteer for each team who drive for a living so know how to manage the road system. We also need a support vehicle moving ahead of the teams to set up a base at the foot of each mountain.

The idea is for team members to come from very different walks of life. We need to have a mixture of men and women in the team. It is important as we build the team that nobody previously knew any other team member.

As we started to build up the team we approached some companies who have the headquarters in the city as well as some services who contribute greatly to our society. This met with a mixed response.

It's a bit hard when we receive a rejection but perfectly understandable, we can't expect everyone to like what we are suggesting. However, to ignore not one but TWO letters is not very polite is it ?

We are going to have to look slightly wider in order to bring the team together.

Once this part of our overall team has been put together and everyone has met a team leader will be chosen. This person will be in overall charge during the climbs and co-ordinate training ahead of the challenge.

We will move from peak to peak to peak in a mini-bus.  Travelling time between the peaks will be time where our climbers can relax, rest and if possible sleep. We need two drivers to speed the mini-'bus between the peaks. We needs drivers who know how to handle traffic and the road system so we are seeking two friends who drive up and down the country for a living. These could be van, truck or coach drivers but need to be those for whom journeys like those we will be making is a part of their everyday life.

Finally we will have a Challenge Co-ordinator. Rebekah's Dad, David, will take on this task. He will bring together all elements of the challenge and make it happen. He will manage publicity ahead of the event and while all team members will be responsible for generating sponsorship it will be David's responsibility to see our 2,000 target is met.

He will publish a blog and video diary starting immediately, this web page being the start.  When the team is formed everything will move to its own website operating alongside OurRebekah. When the challenge has been successfully completed everything will be turned into a small book which will be published on Amazon with all royalties being given to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

When the team has been put together we will be open for sponsorship and will be able to set a date for the challenge. This will be some time in May to July 2018 but work will begin immediately the team has been formed. We are now looking for friends who will make up the team and hope to have everyone in place by mid October with the team coming together for the first time at the end of the month.

Would you like to be a part of this event ?  Please tell us and help make this a major event within the OurRebekah diary.

OurRebekah is all about having fun, doing some amazing, crazy and often silly things. It is all about smiling and helping others to smile. As we do this we will support Ronald McDonald House Charities as it puts a loving arm around families with sick children in hospital, people who are going through some very hard times.

Spend a few moments with us here, check out our different events then come and have lots and lots of fun with us.
