Three Peaks trek raises over £13,000 for the Stroke Association

3-peaks-464
A team of intrepid ISS employees completed the National Three Peaks Challenge in June 2019, raising over £13,000 for the Stroke Association, the ISS corporate Charity partner
The annual trek covers a total distance of 44km incorporating a total ascent of 3,064m to attain the heights that are spread across the UK. The three peaks took in Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and ended at Mount Snowdon in Wales.

The teams began the challenge at Ben Nevis, in Scotland, which is the tallest of the three mountains at 1,345 metres. The lead group reached the summit in just 2.5 hours, with the others close behind. The team then endured a six-hour drive to scale the 978metres of Scafell Pike. A final five-hour drive to Mount Snowden, which stands at 1,085metres, completed the marathon mountaineering bout. 

Despite the gruelling conditions the lead team completed the three ascents with a time of 22 hours, despite the harsh weather and exhaustion and were at the finish to cheer on all team members.

Martin Wayman, Corporate Responsibility Manager, ISS UK commented, “We’re so proud of the incredible feat which this year saw the teams encounter tough weather conditions in the Three Peaks Challenge. A huge well done to everyone for taking part which is a seriously impressive feat in itself, let alone to complete it in 24hours. The drive to support the Stroke Association is a major pillar of our ThinkForward@ISS strategy to make a positive impact on our communities.” He concluded, “At ISS, we’re delighted by the level to which our people are behind the drive to help stroke survivors and their families.”

ISS began a partnership with the Stroke Association in early 2018. With a target of £200,000 by 2030. The sum raised which will go towards funding the set-up and sustainability of Stroke Clubs to provide vital peer-to-peer support for stroke survivors, helping them to rebuild their lives.
