5in5 2019 - 5 Peaks in 5 hours

Event Date: 22 June 2019 - 22 June 2019 Location: Buttermere (above the church)

5in5

The 5in5 is a 5 Peak Challenge in the Lake District, to be completed in 5 hours. There is also a 10in10 Peak Challenge. The annual 10in10 challenge was designed and created by Yvonne Booth in 2011. It was her response to her husband Duncan’s diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis in 2010. As a wife and mother of three sons, she wanted to do something positive and help raise money for research into this cruel illness. Yvonne’s events have developed from fundraising once a year, to giving fundraisers the opportunity to take on a variety of challenges throughout the year. So far, a magnificent £341,000 has been raised for the MS Society UK.

The 2019 event will be held on Saturday, June 22.  Full details and entry are available on the 10in10 website.

Since the event started in 2013 it has raised over £200,000, with all sponsorship money going towards the MS Society’s research into multiple sclerosis.

In this short film you can hear from Duncan himself about his challenges and how MS has affected him.
