The Snowdon Push is an annual event organised by the Charity Back Up Trust and is a challenge unlike any other. Teams consist of one spinal cord injured individual and 10-15 team mates who push, walk and climb the UKs highest mountain; some 3,500 ft.
Andrew Lennox, CEO of UK wide care agency Inclusion Care Limited joined Team Equinox to brave this strenuous challenge in the team’s efforts to support Back Up Trust in raising funds for their Charity which inspires people living with a spinal cord injury to transform their lives and challenges perceptions of disability.
Andrew said “Back Up is a fantastic Charity and I am very proud to have been part of the team. In addition to providing needs based supported living and residential support to individuals with identified needs , Inclusion Care also provides care to a number of individuals throughout the UK who have suffered a life changing spinal cord injury and therefore I am pleased to have had the opportunity to be able to support the Charity who provides individuals with the support and encouragement they need to enhance their independence regardless of their disability; individuals’ stories are truly inspirational”.
Andrew went on to say “It was a tough challenge and I was amazed by the efforts of the team. We completed the challenge in an accredible 3 hours 18 minutes, only 2 minutes behind the leaders and the team have raised at least £2,900.”
This event to date has raised some £40,000 for the Charity and there is still time to show your support by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/snowdon-push-2014/
