SHUOC Running Equivalent of Mount Everest for Charity

A message from Rachel Findlay-Robinson, sister of SLOW’s Dan.

On Saturday the 27th of November, Sheffield University Orienteering and Fell Running Club (ShUOC) are going to run the equivalent of ascending Mount Everest in a relay format. This will involve running up and down “Hero’s Hill” in Sheffield (a hill that is 1.21km long involving 132m height gain) sixty eight times! We are raising money for two charities, the local Mountain Rescue teams and the Teenage and Young Adults Cancer Trust at the Weston Park and Royal Hallamshire Hospitals – these two charities are particularly close to our hearts.

Ingrid and Dan’s (our club captain and treasurer) housemate Ed has recently been diagnosed with a form of cancer, so we’d like to raise as much as we can for the local young people’s cancer trust. Also Mountain Rescue do fantastic work locally and elsewhere, on an entirely voluntary basis, so we would like to show them our support as they do for so many other orienteers and fellrunners!

We have a fundraising page and any donations are greatly appreciated.

I realise some of you may not know us (except for Ralph and I’m Dan’s sister) but these are two fantastic charities so you can always get your good karma for the day by donating

Thanks in advance
Rach (and the rest of ShUOC)
