Over three weekends, the Littell Family (Scarlet, 10, Samuel, 12, Sarah and Lawrence) embarked on climbing the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales and they completed it, raising much needed funds to support Cure Leukaemia and the £1m appeal in 2017.
Tom Ashley, a family friend of the Littell's and local school boy, sportsman, son and brother, is being treated for AML and received chemotherapy treatment at Birmingham’s QE hospital and more recently, a bone marrow transplant. Tom is now just over 100 days post bone marrow transplant and all the signs are looking positive with his treatment.
'Team Tom' continue to show their support to Tom after year's of incredible fundraising. In 2015 'Team Tom' cycled Coast to Coast to raise money for the Teenage Cancer trust when Tom was first diagnosed with AML. For the Three Peaks Challenge, Tom chose to support Cure Leukaemia as the chosen charity and the Littell's went above and beyond to raise over £2,700!
The first peak to be completed was Snowdon, followed by Scafell Pike, but prior to completing Ben Nevis, there was the added complication that Sarah had fractured her foot! Not to be beaten, she removed her aircast and donned a walking boot to complete the challenge!
Everyone at Cure Leukaemia would like to say a huge thank you for completing your epic challenge!
