A post on their Just Giving page prior to the event taking place said:

“This 24 hour event will see 11 men take on their biggest challenge of their lives. In just one day, we will be walking up and down the three biggest peaks in Wales; Snowdon, Cadair Idris & Pen-Y-Fan. A very difficult challenge perhaps for those who are fit but an extremely difficult challenge for a group of lads, who are more use to climbing blood pressures than climbing mountains and more use to downing pints than downing peaks.

“The walk is not only about setting ourselves a challenge but also to help with fitness levels, mental health and to raise a huge amount for St. Michaels Hospice, who do amazing things in the county. The Hospice has also touched many of our lives, with family members and friends having end of life care with them.

“We would really appreciate any type of donation no matter the amount. It’s for a great cause and every little bit donated will make such a difference.”
