The Modus Team Prepare For The Three Peaks Challenge

The Modus Team Prepare For The Three Peaks Challenge on the 10/11th October

Preparations are underway for Modus' employees who plan to complete the Three Peaks Challenge to raise much needed funds for their chosen charity Hope For Children.

Hope For Children is a small charity which works across nine countries in Africa, Asia and Europe to improve the lives of children. Working with orphaned, poor, exploited and other marginalised children in developing countries and in the UK Hope For Children are a non-sectarian, non-political and not-for-profit organisation that provides crucial support to children who really need it.

Hope For Children aim to "create a world where children’s rights are realised and they can reach their full potential."

The Modus team are committed to raising some serious funds for this very deserving cause. Current Hope For Children projects include tackling child trafficking and labour in Ghana, support for blind children in Tanzania, empowering street children in India and running small grants programmes for the most economically vulnerable children in the UK.

The Three Peaks Challenge is a serious commitment involving the ascent and descent of each of the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales completed within 24 hours. The total distance walked will be 27 miles with an ascent of 9,800 feet. Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon pose a considerable challenge when completed in such a tight time frame, especially as they are 462 miles apart. This will be a real test of physical endurance and mental stamina, not to mention a formidable challenge to our map reading abilities!
