Over the August Bank Holiday weekend, Frazer Lloyd and 30 of his friends and family, began their mission to smash their target of completing the UK Three Peaks Challenge in just 24 hours. The group managed to climb Ben Nevis, Scaffell Pike & Snowdon in an incredible 23 hours & 50 minutes and were joined by even more supporters for the final climb.
Not only did they complete this mammoth challenge in an unbelievable time, they also held a fun day on the Sunday – with bouncy castles, face painting and games for the kids, followed by live music from a DJ, a raffle and an auction in the evening!
Their mission was to raise awareness of SMA and they were inspired by Frazer and Leah’s nine-month old son, Frank, who has SMA Type 1.
Frank was born in January 2023 and received treatment at Alder Hey Hospital, who continue his care as an Outpatient following a long stay in hospital. Frank’s Grandma, Sharon, says “He is an absolute inspiration to us all. He defies all the odds that he’s up against and powers through. He is an amazing, beautiful funny, little soul. Our little warrior and adored by our whole group of friends and supportive family.’
The family are keen to continue raising awareness of SMA with future events and will be making a donation to SMA UK from the funds they have raised so far. Thank you so much to you all for your amazing support!
