The team trained hard, but nothing was to prepare them  for the reality of Yorkshire’s three highest mountains; 5200 ft of ascent, and over 24 miles of uneven terrain.

Team spirit kept the guru’s going

“The Yorkshire Three Peaks is the hardest thing any of us have ever done. We were pushed to our utter limits both mentally and physically. Thinking of the amazing work When You Wish Upon a Star do and the poorly children they help, got us through this mammoth challenge,” commented Susan Nash, Strategic Guru at the Midlands creative agency.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks pushed the guru’s to their absolute limits; with countless blisters, pure exhaustion both mentally and physically, terrifying heights and unbearable sores. It is safe to say blood, sweat and tears went into the challenge, all for an incredible cause.

The team are delighted to announce they have raised nearly £1400 including gift aid, for the East Midlands based charity. When You Wish Upon a Star grants the Wishes of children living with a life-threatening illness. These wishes allow families to put their child’s illness on hold, as they make precious memories that last a lifetime.

The guru’s continued to up the stakes of their target leading up to the challenge, with a charity close to the team’s hearts, the sky was the limit of their fundraising target.

Creative Director, Chris Reynolds remarked; “Once we knew how much money we’d need to raise to pay for a child and guardian to spend a magical day in Lapland and meet the real father Christmas, we set ourselves that target. Reaching £900 was crucial for the team to ensure the challenge would pay for this once in a lifetime trip for a poorly child. We’re over the moon that we have helped make this happen, and we can’t thank our supporters enough.”
