The 3 Peaks Challenge for MS

Its that time of year again, when the S A Partners family put their foot and body forward for worthy charitable causes, and this one was a biggy! As in the previous year, Steve Baker and his son Elliot, took on the gruelling Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge in aid of Multiple Screlosis.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Yorkshire Three Peaks route it self is 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent.

The wet weather didnt dent their enthusiasm, and they completed the challenge in 9 hours 3 mins and 41 seconds, which was a full 2 hours quicker than the previous year. Apart from their sponsored funds, S A Partners also donated £400 to the cause, and we are all very proud of their hard earned achievement for an extremely worthwhile cause that helps thousands of people through very difficult times.

The MS Society offer help and support to those who suffer with this dreadful disease, along with family members. Help with emotional support, Financial advise and help, online community, Care services and general every day living.

They also invest in research areas such as MRI scanning, which has has helped them understand more about MS than ever before. Recently their researchers at the MS Society Edinburgh Centre for MS Research, have uncovered a switch in the brain and spinal cord that can promote myelin repair.
