Team Ehrmanns completes Three Peaks Challenge for Pancreatic Cancer Action
While the rest of us were watching the exciting events at the Olympics, a team of colleagues from Ehrmanns had their own challenge to complete – the Three Peaks Challenge. The Three Peaks Challenge is a gruelling event and involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland, including Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis and is often completed within 24 hours.
Team Ehrmanns managed to complete the Challenge in 26 hours – an amazing feat seeing as they were held up in traffic for some for some of the way.
The team were raising funds in memory of their colleague and our friend, Michael Jarzebowski – who gave us his story of his experiences of pancreatic cancer including that of Cyberknife treatment. Michael sadly passed away in October 2011.Click the link to read Michael’s pancreatic cancer story
Rebecca Murphy who organised the event said, “To be honest we were all just amazed we managed to do it at all as it was so much harder than we thought. Our legs are finally getting back to normal and its only just sinking in what we achieved. What really kept us going was the amazing generosity of our friends, family and colleagues, and watching the sponsorship creep up!”
We at Pancreatic Cancer Action would like the whole of the Ehrmanns team along with all their supporters and family members who have helped them raise over £3,600 so far! Thanks guys!
