AD are taking part in the grueling National Three Peaks Challenge in order to raise funds for World Child Cancer.
This event is truly stunning as it takes in the highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, but also immensely demanding as the team have to complete the challenge within just 24 hours.
The team will start at 5 am and head to Ben Nevis in Scotland; standing at the western end of the Grampian Mountains, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles and is formed from the collapsed dome of an ancient volcano.
Mountain number 2 is Scafell Pike; it is the highest mountain in England and consists of a steep ascent. The team will also descend in darkness before trying to catch some sleep on the drive to Snowdonia for the concluding climb and descent.
It's a difficult challenge for professionals and our team consists of staff who have never undertaken such an event before.
They are all putting in hours of training to prepare for the challenge and would appreciate your support!

Hear more about the challenge here-
The three mountains are:
Snowdon, in Wales (1085m)
Scafell Pike, in England (978m)
Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1345m)
A popular misconception is that the three mountains that form the challenge are the three tallest on the British mainland. Rather, they are the tallest mountains within each representative country:
Scafell Pike is the tallest in England.
Snowdon, the tallest in Wales
Ben Nevis the tallest in Scotland
Fun Fact - Over one hundred peaks in Scotland are higher than Scafell Pike, and 56 higher than Snowdon.
