Layla Wray and Max Dalby from Harrogate are in their own words, “raising money for the amazing Candlelighters charity who support children with cancer in Yorkshire”

One challenge is not enough for these two, they are taking on a whole year of extreme challenges including at least one every single month in 2018

Laylay said, “We care greatly about this charity and the amazing work they do for Children.

I am doing a year of extreme challenges to raise money in memory of my beautiful brother, Aidan Wray who lost his horrendous battle with cancer at the age of 16 in 2006. I am hoping to raise as much money as possible as Candlelighters helped my brother so much and I want to fight for children’s cancer for the rest of my life”.

Some of the biggest challenges include “Man Vs Lakes” a brutal marathon over the hills of the Lake District, covering over 4200 foot of ascent, and a few swims in the lakes. Man vs Mountain, a 22 mile climb to the summit of Mount Snowdon, covering over 5055ft of inclines. If that’s not enough, it’s the longest obstacle race in the world, 20 miles long with 200 gruelling obstacles along the way. The mighty Deerstalker’ a 13 mile climb over two mountains in the dark with a head torch. Plus many more!
