Four Peaks in 48 hours for Phil

We will be attempting "The Four Peaks Challenge". This will involve climbing the highest mountains in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England within 48 hours. The four mountains are as follows:

  • Carrauntoohil, in Ireland (1,038m)
  • Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1,345m)
  • Scafell Pike, in England (978m)
  • Snowdon, in Wales (1,085m)

Our live location will be updated on the map every five minutes between Friday and Sunday.

Phil's Story...

We are raising money in Phil's memory for Sarcoma UK because he would want his legacy to help others.

Phil was diagnosed with an alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma in September 2020. He endured nine rounds of chemotherapy, followed by radiation therapy at University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre. Despite the efforts of all those involved, just three weeks following completion of treatment, a PET scan showed that the cancer had spread. He returned to his home in Ireland in December 2021 spending his last Christmas with his family and loved ones before passing away in January 2022 at the age of 28, 16 months following his initial diagnosis.

Throughout his treatment he showed incredible bravery, courage and strength. Despite every set back, he carried on with the optimism he was always known for. Sadly, despite exploring every avenue, there was nothing that could save Phil.

Phil will be remembered by all of those who knew him for his infectious smile and booming laughter. He was a pleasure to be around and we will miss him every day.

The Cause...

Sarcoma UK is our chosen charity as Phil was diagnosed in the UK and the majority of his care was in the UK. We want to raise money to help further research into this rare disease and provide resources and means for those fighting this cancer. We feel that providing funding to this charity will better serve people from Ireland, the UK and further afield.

We're raising money for SarcomaUK through JustGiving.
