Fundraiser Jack describes 'toughest challenge'

A fundraiser who successfully completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge for UHNM Charity has described it as ‘one of the toughest challenges of my life’.

Jack Merriman completed the 24-mile, 1,600m climb in under 12 hours to raise funds for UHNM’s Critical Care Unit and Ward 228 Neurosurgery who saved his mum’s life following a ruptured brain aneurysm.

Jack, who lives in Manchester, was joined by his colleagues at Cisco where he works as an apprentice.

He told us: “The climb is one of the toughest challenges I have ever done in my life. I am only just recovering now after being covered in aches, pains and blisters.”

“My favourite part was towards the top of the third peak, Pen-Y-Ghent. It involved a bit of a scramble which was tough, especially at that stage of the day. But had great views all around and I felt amazing after completing it.”

“It feels amazing to have completed it now, I was quite nervous about it for a while. We have now earned over 220% of our target and the donations are coming in post challenge too, which is really great to see.”

Jack has so far raised over £2,200.

Donations can still be made here.
