3 Geeks Conquer 3 Peaks


11th September 2015

3 “Geeks” from Blackadders Solicitors have put their body on the line to complete the “3 Peak Challenge”. This is a gruelling experience which involves scaling the three highest peaks in Wales, England and Scotland within just 24 hours.

The three members - who all work in the Blackadders Employment law team - completed the challenge to raise funds for the Tayside Health Fund.

Andrew Wallace, the youngest member of the team explained: “The motivation behind completing this was to raise money for the Tayside Health Fund, particularly the breast cancer care department at Ninewells Hospital. This is a department with which our families have all had dealings and have seen first-hand the great work that they do. This is our way of saying thanks for their work!”

On Friday 4 September at 9pm, the team started the challenge in Gwynedd, climbing Mount Snowdon before making their way up Scafell Pike located in the Lake District and finishing with the unenviable task of scaling Ben Nevis. In total, the team climbed a combined total of 3407m.

The team kept themselves – and others – entertained on their journey via Twitter where users could follow their progress using the “#3Geeks3Peaks” hashtag.

Andrew continued: “As expected, the challenge was extremely tough and the legs were very sore come Monday morning but it was definitely worth it!”

The Tayside Health Fund supports NHS Tayside hospitals and services, where money donated can help their causes immensely. This includes helping buy extra items for patients, supporting new medical research and supporting volunteer services.
