We are a team of four who work together from Preston Lancashire and we are doing as much as we can to support JDRF who are trying to beat type 1 diabetes in children.
We are also trying to inspire other people to inspire them to have a healthier 2019.
Our name, mountain to climb, was chosen as family’s with children who have type 1 diabetes have a mountain to climb so to help support them so do we.
We choose JDRF as a charity because one of the members of our group’s son has type 1 diabetes and we are are seeing what we can do to raise as much money as we can to support combating type 1 diabetes.
We started by bringing collection boxes into work and then moved on to raising small amounts of money in work, charity days.
In 2018 we completed the Yorkshire 3 peak challenge 23 miles over 3 mountains in 9 hours. It was a fantastic day and we raised over £500 in a short amount of time through sponsorships from friends and family.
In 2019 we want to see if we can do more we are looking to organise events and looking at further sponsorships to help us hit our target.
Every little helps even as little as a pound.
Thank you for your consideration.
