Kids take on three peaks for cancer victim
Bookmark and Share
A group of over 100 teenagers have put on their walking boots and taken on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge to raise £9,000 for a cancer charity named after a 14-year-old who died of bone cancer.

The Lauren Kisby Memorial Walk saw 53 students of Crawshaw High School in Pudsey, Leeds, complete all three summits of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent over the weekend, Horsforth Today reports.

Another 60 managed at least two.

With June providing the longest daylight hours of the year, this is traditionally the time when people take on major challenges such as the Yorkshire and National Three Peaks.

The latter involves climbs of the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon respectively - in 24 hours.

Last month saw several bodies in the Lake District come together to fund the creation of additional toilet facilities to help the hamlet of Wasdale Head cope with the influx of Three Peaks climbers using the village as the start point of the Scafell Pike ascent.
