The early hours of Saturday 28th May saw Candlelighters supporters descend on Horton in Ribblesdale to take on the third Candlelighters Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge!

Walkers take a quick break after the first peak.

Over 60 walkers set off to cover the 24 miles and 5200 ft ascent route across the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, all to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer.

Here at Candlelighters we are incredibly humbled by all the support this event received and are amazed by what those that took part have achieved. The running fundraising total for the event so far is a staggering total of over £21,000! This money will make a real difference to families across Yorkshire affected by childhood cancer.

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved for all the walking, running (!) and volunteering – we couldn’t do our work without your support!

Candlelighters were overwhelmed by support shown at the event.

We’ve now uploaded the event photographs to our Facebook page, so please do take a look, tag yourself in and share them so your friends and family can see what’s been achieved!
