The 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 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.

“I pushed my personal boundaries to the limit…after 25 years I have exceeded my own expectations and I feel proud of myself! The aching bones will fade soon but the memories never will.”

Julie, Push 2015 participant
