We Take on the 10-Y-Fan Challenge in Aid of Alzheimer's Society

Thu 27 June 2019

McCartneys will be tackling the 10-Y-Fan Challenge on 19th/20th July and our aim is to do 10 ascents of Pen-Y-Fan (the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons) within 24 hours. 10 ascents of Pen-Y-Fan is the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest, so no small task. The reason we have set ourselves this challenge is to raise money for the 2019 McCartneys chosen charity, the Alzheimer’s Society. We are supporting this wonderful cause to help with the fight against dementia and we hope anyone reading this will be willing to make a donation to support this challenge. The participating climbers will start on Friday 19th July, with the individual efforts climbing through the night, finishing on Saturday 20th July 2019. We currently have 5 individuals aiming to do a solo effort of ten ascents in 24 hours and 2 teams looking to do 10 ascents between them, meaning we hopefully collectively climb the equivalent of Mount Everest 8 times within 24 hours. Any donations, big or small, will be greatly appreciated. Please visit our JustGiving page if you would like to make a donation and please keep a look out for updates on our social media sites throughout the challenge. Thank you in advance for all your support.
