Snowdon challenge to raise money for Alzheimer's Society

A GRUELLING mountain climb is set to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Stratford software company Enable are preparing to cover some 35km across Snowdonia National Park by bike, foot and kayak.

The event known as the Snowdon Triple Challenge, will take place on August 4 and so far the team has raised over £2,800 of its £4,355 target.

The 11 employees will be cycling 17km along the shore of Llanberis Lake before swapping bikes for walking boots and climbing the 1065 metres to the summit and back. A 4km kayak across the lake will complete the challenge.

Organiser Naomi Fiddes-Baron said: “Having watched my nanny go through this devastating condition which affects so many more people than just the individual with the disease, it is genuinely heart-warming to have this support and know our physical exertion with have a great impact for the charity.”

There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK with the number expected to rise to one million by 2021.

Enable is also hosting an online auction from Monday July 16 with items varying from a helicopter lesson to massages and holiday accommodation.
