The Snowdon Push
Date: Saturday 22 Jun 2019
Sponsorship Target: Participants are required to raise £2,000 per team
The Snowdon Push is Back Up’s toughest, yet most exhilarating fundraising event and tests each and every member to the max. It’s an amazing experience that brings together people from all walks of life to work as a team and reach one of the highest points in the British Isles, all whilst raising funds for people with a spinal cord injury and their families.
The Push involves teams of between 10 and 16 people aiming to conquer the highest mountain in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon, which is over 3,500 ft high.
One member of each team must be a wheelchair user, which means pushing, pulling, climbing and wheeling as a team to reach the summit and back down again, covering approximately 8 miles of steep, mixed surfaced terrain.
“One of the most rewarding experiences I have ever participated in – a great sense of group comradery and Steph was hugely inspirational with her constant positive attitude despite a bumpy journey up Snowdonia!”
Peter Grant, Push 2017 participant
