Miles for Mark – Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge 2015
On Saturday 11th July 2015, 30 members of staff from Kitsons will be taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge attempting to walk 24 miles in just 12 hours.
Team Kitsons will take on the steep climbs and descents of Pen-y-ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m). These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The challenge will be completed in memory of our colleague Mark Batten, who passed away suddenly in March 2014.
Mark worked at Kitsons for over 35 years and was an active supporter of the firm. In 2013 when the firm took on the National Three Peaks Challenge, Mark acted as a volunteer driver from our head office in Torquay to Scotland and back.
As Mark had a link with Diabetes UK, it seemed the natural choice for this fundraising effort.
