Swansea University Nursing students complete Welsh 3 peaks challenge raising £2,000 for charity

A group of students from the College of Human and Health Sciences recently took part in the Welsh 3 Peaks challenge, scaling the heights of Snowdon, Cadir Idrs and Pen Y Fan in an incredible 15 hours.

3 peaks challenge

On the 17th June, Ellen Stables, Angelina Davies, Sonia Jones, Alison Morris, Louise Sieuw together with their partners and friends Tyenne Morgan, Ceri Dean, Rachel Davis, not Forgetting their drivers, Mathew Davies  and Leanne Oram-Reuben's all took part in the Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge, climbing Snowdon, Cadir idris and then Pen Y Fan, in only 15 hours, raising £2,000 for Ty Hafan. 

Now in its 19th year, the Ty Hafan 3 peaks challenge organised event sees teams from all of the world walk a distance of 20.35 miles, making a total ascent of 9,397ft (2,864m), raising money for the charity.  Ty Hafan is one of the UK's leading paediatric palliative care charities and offers care to children and support for their families, throughout Wales.

Ellen comments, "I just love a challenge & thought it would be good for us all to have something else to focus on other than uni/work life etc (team building) & why not raise some money at the same time for such an amazing charity so when I seen Ty Hafan advertise the event I thought why not & who's crazy enough to do it with me."
