Jennings Harley Davidson’s motorcycle sales executive Scott Williams will be taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust in the North East.
Williams (pictured) will undergo the 25-mile circular route on June 25, which entails taking on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough, in under 12 hours.
He said: “This is my first real challenge since leaving the army more than two years ago, and I’m really looking forward to it, but most importantly, I want to raise as much money to help teenagers in our region who are battling cancer.”
Scott’s initial aim was £500, and thanks to sponsorship from members of his family, work colleagues and customers, in addition to a Just Giving page, he’s already achieved 80% of his target.
Sonia Graham from Teenage Cancer Trust said: “We wish Scott the best of luck for his forthcoming challenge, it’s fantastic that he is willing to take this on to raise funds to support young people locally.
“Young people with cancer need specialised nursing and emotional support. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity meeting this critical need. Right now we can only help half of young people with cancer with our world-leading nursing.”
