Willow blog

Three Peaks countdown

February 3, 2015

Hello everyone. It’s great that the Willow blog is now established and from time to time I will be sharing some things about Willow and my role here.

In the 18 months that I have been at Willow I’ve been consistently inspired by the amazing challenges you all undertake for us and thought that it was about time I did a challenge myself.

Scaling just one mountain didn’t seem to compare to some of the amazing marathons or tough mudders that you have all been doing, so instead I will be climbing three of the highest peaks in the UK, Snowden, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.

My challenge starts just 100 days from now, on 14 May, so the countdown is really on.

Although I’m sure it will be an incredible experience, the reason I’m doing this is, of course, to raise money to provide even more unforgettable Special Days.

And I’m not the only one. We have an exciting year of challenges ahead, including brand new events: Hertfordshire 100 cycle challenge and Willow Warrior. Our Will of Iron triathlon and much loved Willow 10K at Hatfield house are also back and better than ever.

I’ll be making sure I keep you informed with regular updates of my progress, from wet and windy training walks to intense indoor gym sessions (and both have already started) – so watch this space.

Thank you for being the inspiration for my three peaks challenge – and wish me well in getting fit for it!!
