Circle Rehabilitation physiotherapists to climb in ‘Three Peaks Challenge’

 

 

Nine intrepid Circle Health physiotherapists will attempt this weekend the ‘National Three Peaks Challenge’ – a 24-hour mission to climb the highest mountain of Scotland, England and Wales respectively.

Over the three hikes, they plan to walk a total of about 26 miles, reaching a combined 10,000 feet in elevation.

The Circle Rehabilitation physios will drive overnight in a minibus on Friday, 14 July, to Scotland. They will begin their first ascent at 5am of Ben Nevis (4,413 feet). Then, the group will drive to the Lake District in England to climb Scafell Pike (3,209 feet). Their final ascent will be Mount Snowdon (3,560 feet) in Wales.

The team members are:

  • David Bevan
  • Richard Forbes
  • Steph Heyes
  • Emily Gilbert
  • Mike Dye
  • Michael Downward
  • Hannaa Malik
  • Claire Stevens
  • Stuart Wylie

Steph’s fiancé, Tim Brain, will be the team’s dedicated driver around the UK for this feat. The physios are climbing for the spirit of adventure. They are also raising money for BIBS (Babies in Buscot Support), a charity that supports babies and their families in the special care baby unit (Buscot Ward) at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading.
