Ex Cadets Zack Feve (an ex Cadet Staff Sergeant from Scunthorpe Detachment) and Mitchell Crossland (an ex Cadet Coporal from Waltham Detachment ) are taking on a massive challenge to raise fund for the Army Cadet Charitable Trust (ACCT)
The pair will be taking on the National Three Peaks Challenge. They will attempt to summit the three highest peaks of the UK Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafel Pike. A feat involving 26 mies and 3000 meters of assent. Not to mention 500 miles of travel and a time limit of 48 hours.
PSI Feve, now an instructor at Epwotrh and Isle of Axholme Detachment Says "I chose the Three peaks (Ben Nevis, Mount Snowden and Scafel Pike) not only for the challenge of it but because I want it to show people that anyone can do anything if they set their mind to it!"
When asked why they chose to support the ACCT he says " We chose the ACCT UK due to it helping us both and countless others attend Germany in 2016. It was an amazing event and now that I am an adult instructor I see first hand the benefits it not only gives to cadets but the opportunities it allows adults. For example gaining both military and civilian qualifications."
The challenge will take place on the 17th/18th of July and you can help them reach their fundraising target of £3000 by donating on their gofund.me page. There is no minimum donation and all the proceeds go straight to the charity.
