The Snowdon at Night challenge
30 March 2021
Our Chair Nicky Thompson is hoping as many people as possible will come forward to join her in a special moonlit challenge to raise funds for our charity.
The Snowdon at Night challenge, which will take place on the evening of 7th to 8th August, gives walkers the chance to explore the highest mountain in Wales and England by moonlight, trekking the Llanberis track to its summit.
Once at the top, participants will be rewarded with unforgettable views of the sun rising across Snowdonia National Park, before descending with breath-taking sights of the mountain range, and tucking into a well-earned, celebratory breakfast as they cross the finish line in Llanberis.
Nicky explained: “So many people have found a new love of walking during lockdown, as they put on their boots and head outside for their daily exercise. This challenge is a great way for people to commit to keeping up the momentum, while also doing something that will hopefully help women across the North West too.
“We’re a really small charity, and we’ve been so overwhelmed by the kindness of local people since we started raising money in Dianne’s memory. The most important thing to us is raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, and trying to reach as many of the 3.7 million women in the North West as possible – especially the 940,000 who are aged over 60 and in the highest risk group.
“We simply couldn’t continue our work without the generous members of the public who donate or take part in our events and activities. We’d love as many people as possible to join us for this latest challenge – it’s one that will certainly be memorable, and any sponsorship raised will also help us to reach out to even more women. It could save lives, and give families the time that Dianne Oxberry and her family sadly didn’t have together.”
