The Snowdon Push
Date: Saturday 4 Jul 2020
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 eight miles of steep, mixed surfaced terrain.
“Oh my goodness, how do I effectively express my gratitude for the opportunity to share this experience with such wonderful, selfless people. It proved such a huge challenge but each member of the team stepped up and gave it their all. Each time I close my eyes I see that sea of happy, exhausted, supportive and jubilant faces. I’ll always hold onto and treasure that memory”.
