Bevisol is taking part in ‘Trek the Night – Cotswold Way 2017’ – on 10 June 2017, to raise funds for Action Medical Research. Since 1952, Action Medical Research has been funding research into finding new cures and treatments for sick children achieving breakthrough’s, such as the polio and rubella vaccines, as well as ultrasound scans.
Trek the Night is a grueling 40-mile hike over the Cotswold Hills, starting at midnight and taking around 16 hours. It will be a tough endurance challenge and, to prepare themselves, the Bevisol hiking team has already completed a number of endurance hikes to build up their stamina for the main event.
So far, they have completed a number of charity events, such as an early morning 16 mile walk at Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, Wales in January, an exhausting 23 mile hike over the beautiful but stamina sapping Black Mountains in Brecon and a 26 mile hike through the Wye Forest in the West Midlands, all helping to raise money for important charities along the way, such as air ambulance, St Michael’s Hospice and the mountain rescue teams.
The teams would be grateful for any donations to help spur them on during the 16 hour walk!
