Team Enigma and The Three Peaks

This weekend saw Team Enigma – a group of esp employees – take on the Welsh Three Peaks, Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen Y Fan.

Starting off just after 4am on Saturday morning, the team headed up the Miners Track towards the peak of Snowdon through thick fog and pouring rain. A few hours later, a soggy but ecstatic team reach the peak with enough time to take a selfie before heading back down.

Cadair Idris was next and with the rain not letting up the team pushed onwards and upwards to reach the peak around 2pm ahead of schedule.

With the journey to Pen Y Fan taking its toll on tired muscles the final peak seemed a daunting prospect, however the team charged through the final barrier to reach the peak and head back down to finish in amazing time – some finishing within 15 hours, but all completing under 15 and ½ hours.

Together Team Enigma tackled over 23 miles and accumulated over 500,000 steps. The Three Peaks destroyed boots, waterproofs, mobile phones and a few muscles, however the team finished with their sense of humour still intact and smiles firmly on all faces.

The Team completed the challenge to raise money for two charities WedAid and Midlands Air Ambulance.

WedAid (1153279) is a local charity which raises money to help change the lives of children in schools or orphanages where the smallest gifts can make the biggest difference.

The formal objectives of the charity are: To advance education, relieve poverty and promote good health of children and young people anywhere in the world, in particular but not exclusively by the provision of money, items and services to schools and orphanages.

Midlands Air Ambulance (1143118) is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.

What is not widely known is that Midlands Air Ambulance receives no Government or National Lottery funding. Each Midlands Air Ambulance mission costs £2,500 and in excess of £7 million is needed each year to keep its three air ambulances operational, which is donated entirely by the public and local businesses.

You still have time to donate so please give all you can!!!!
