FOR most people, completing the Three Peaks Challenge is demanding enough.

But not, it seems, for Amy Warrener, of Northwich, who will be heading up the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales as well as cycling the distance in between.

On Thursday, June 20, the 24-year-old will be taking on her self-coined Peaks and Pedal challenge, which will see her climb more than 11,000ft across the three mountains, and cycling the 435 miles between them, all in under 72 hours.

Amy is completing this daunting challenge for the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital in memory of her cousin Charlotte, who died aged two from a rare genetic disorder.

Just five at the time of her cousin's death, Amy has been inspired to seize life and be grateful for every day.

She said: "Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital is a beacon of hope for so many families across Manchester and the surrounding areas.

"Families who are going through the most unthinkable of times.

“Not only do they help to provide care to those children who so desperately need it, they also act as a shoulder to lean on for the families, like my own, who experienced their support first hand.

"It is for these reasons I have chosen to raise money for this incredible cause."

Charlotte, who would have celebrated her 23rd birthday this year, was treated at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

Amy hopes to honour Charlotte's life by raising £30,000 for the hospital before she turns 30.

Training has gone well for the challenge and Amy is 'super excited' to take on Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) in Wales, England's Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in Scotland.

She added: “I am an even mixture of completely bricking it and super excited.

"I am hoping for great weather which will hopefully help keep morale high. The training is going really well too.

"It is a lot of long hours on the bike and early mornings in the gym, but I keep reminding myself that it is all for an amazing cause."

Jo Thomas, relationship officer at Manchester Foundation Trust Charity, said: "We’re in awe of Amy’s Peaks and Pedals Challenge.

"What a brilliant way to raise money. We wish her the best of luck with the challenge and hope it can support her equally inspiring plans to raise £30,000 for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital before she is 30."

To date, Amy has raised more than £5,000 of her £30,000 total target, having previously taken on the London to Paris Bike Ride and the Northwich Marathon.

She hopes to raise £10,000 taking part in Peaks and Pedals through sponsorship from local businesses, friends, family, and contacts.
