2008 saw Britain’s first wheelchair-led ascent of Ben Nevis. This year you could be part of the adventure.
Sponsored by Bowmore, the first Islay Single Malt whisky the Bowmore Ben Nevis Challenge, supporting Capability Scotland, will see teams of disabled and non-disabled people work together to take on the challenge of scaling the UK’s highest peak on Saturday 4th June 2011.
You could be part of it. We are looking for wheelchair users who want to lead a team to the summit. Guided by ex-SAS officer and TV Presenter Ken Hames, twelve teams of six led by disabled people will take on this challenge, which will not only raise valuable funds for Capability but challenge people’s expectations of what is possible.
The leaders will navigate and direct their team to the summit. No previous experience is needed, but you must be up for the challenge itself, for leading a team, helping with the fundraising and getting mentally and physically fit for the ascent. Physically the challenge is extremely draining but the team will work together, supporting each other throughout.
Time is short, the challenge kicks off with a training weekend on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th April so if you want to be part of it let us know. Contact Suzanne O’Hara on 01313471044 /07787536658
