Well after 52 weeks the Tinto challenge is finally completed in a total time of 51hrs 55min !
December was the toughest month by far eating into the 1hr cushion that I had built up over the Summer with gale force winds, snow, Ice & freezing temperatures. But every climb was worth it as the total with gift aid approaches the £11K mark.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored me, supported me and joined me over the last year making the challenge much more achievable! A special thank you to Rod for pushing me & pacing me up and down so many of the climbs and to my super Pup Cal who pulled me up and down in the worst conditions 19 times!…I know he’ll miss the hill more than me.
Thank you to Rod,Carol & Lynne for coming to cheer me over the line for the last time on Boxing Day morning and to Andrew for taking the brilliant pictures that I’ll cherish.
Because of everyone’s sponsorship & generosity we have doubled the initial target and passed the magic £10K barrier which is the amount required that could fund the start up of a life saving research project!
