Challenge 6 was the infamous 3 peaks challenge, which saw the 24 participants climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in under 24 hours. With their success rate so far, there was little doubt that Lucie and Tony would conquer all 3 peaks, along with the numerous other loyal participants, eager to get involved and support them in The Big 8 Challenge.
On August 22nd, The Big 8 Challenge will take an adrenaline infused journey all the way to the United States to complete a Tandem Sky Dive. Lucie and Tony will use this time to celebrate their 50th and 30th birthdays, before returning home and completing a mini triathlon at Marl Pits. With 2 challenges to go Tony and Lucie have smashed their goal of £10,000 but the fundraising is ongoing!
September 24th will be the last of the 8 challenges, as well as a celebration for all those who have joined in, donated and supported Tony and Lucie along the way. Amazing raffle prizes will be available on the night, including tickets to the England Vs Australia rugby match at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 11th November.Wykamol have also donated a two-night stay in a lovely London hotel, making the rugby weekend a wonderful minibreak for couples or friends.
The final event and raffle will be held at Rossendale Rugby Club. To keep up to date with Lucie and Tony’s journey follow their Facebook page here or make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society here and support their tremendous efforts.
