Make it count

I am writing to thank all Mail readers who supported the British Heart Foundation Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

With more than 500 hikers taking part, we yet again enjoyed a successful year.

There’s just one more very important step that we need all of those involved to take.

While we are thrilled with the turnout, what allows us to come back year after year is the money the event raises.

Money which funds pioneering research in the fight against heart disease.

Thank you to everyone who has already sent in their sponsorship money.

So far we have raised more than £75,000. However we know there’s more to come.

We are urging everyone that worked so hard to achieve their challenge on the day to make their achievements count by helping to fight against the UK’s single biggest killer – coronary heart disease.

The best way to raise money is to set up an online fund-raising page.

Or should you need any more sponsorship forms, please contact us on 0845 130 8663 or email

Next year’s event will be July 9. So why not sign up early to secure your place? Entry fee will be £35.

You can register by visiting or calling the events team on 0845 130 8663.
