The Pharma Nord team will be testing their endurance and raising money for the Children's Heart Unit at Newcastle's Freeman Hospital this summer by completing the Three Peaks Challenge.
Three Peaks Challenge
They will reach the summits of Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland all in less than 24 hours. In total, the mountains are more than 3,400 metres high, which is more than 11 times higher than both the Shard (308 metres) and the Eiffel Tower (301 metres).
National Sales Manager Rasmus Henriksen commented: “To complete the Three Peaks Challenge in less than 24 hours will require determination and endurance. As well as completing training walks in the months ahead, we will also be focusing on nutrition."
Bio-Quinone Active Q10 will be the power source throughout the challenge. Coenzyme Q10 is required by every cell in our bodies to produce energy and levels can be depleted by intense physical exercise, as well as age.
The team will also be topping up with vitamin D3 to support their immune system and protect against the onset of flu and colds. Magnesium will also be used to combat fatigue and help with muscle recovery and functioning.
The Children's Heart Unit at Newcastle's Freeman Hospital is one of only two centres in the UK offering paediatric heart transplant and bridge to transplant. For more information visit https://www.chuf.org.uk/ or to sponsor us visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/pharma-nord
