Together with friends and colleagues #TEAMTRESPASS shall be setting off on 13 June 2015 to take on the Arrochar Alps to raise funds for the Beatson Cancer Charity.
Some of us shall be taking on the 3 main mountains in the group, Ben Narnain, Ben Ime and The Cobbler (also known as Ben Arthur). Some of us may tackle 2 or just 1 of the Arrochar Alps.
It doesn’t matter in the end, its the cause that counts. Unfortunately this terrible disease is something that will touch all of us at some point whether it directly effects you or someone you know.
We have set up our #TEAMTRESPASS donation site at Just Giving, so please give what you can. The site makes it really easy to donate online or via text. Why not leave a word of support while you’re there?
I hope to take some photos, maybe some video on the day, so there will be some follow up on the challenge. Stay tuned!
Fancy taking part yourself?
3, 2 or 1? How many of the Arrochar Alps will you take on in this brand new Beatson Cancer Charity event?
What better way to spend a beautiful Saturday in June than by walking up some of the most breath-taking hills in Scotland whilst raising vital funds for Beatson patients and their families.
