Springboard supports Crohn’s & Colitis UK

Springboard supports Crohn’s & Colitis UK

The Springboard Team will be taking on The Yorkshire Three Peaks on the13th July 2023 to raise funds for Crohn’s & Colitis UK. This charity is close to our hearts as Ryan, our office manager’s brother, has suffered with this from the age of 9. We are keen to raise as much money as possible for this great charity and would appreciate if you can donate any amount big or small.

The Cause

Crohn’s & Colitis UK are the UK’s leading charity for Crohn’s and Colitis. They work to improve diagnosis and treatment, to fund research into a cure; to raise awareness and to give people the hope, comfort and confidence to live freer, fuller lives.

Unfortunately Ryan’s condition was severe meaning all treatment eventually stopped working resulting in him needing bowel removal surgery and a stoma fitted in August 2021.

After recovery from his bowel surgery and adapting to the huge change in his life, Ryan was slowly but surely starting to live a normal life until he was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in January 2022. This all stemmed from his prior diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis.

Despite all his challenges, Ryan has been so positive throughout and we are so thankful to say the tumour was successfully removed and in February 2023, Ryan was given the initial “all clear”. He has recently celebrated his 27th birthday, is now thriving in work and beginning to live a normal, happy life as he deserves.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a 24-mile (38.6km) round trip walk, which includes 1585m (5,200ft) of ascent, to be completed in under 12 hours.

The walk takes in the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres), forming part of the Pennine range, and encircling the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

A challenge not for the faint-hearted, our Team have signed up in their numbers to take on the peaks in aid of such a great cause. Participants include: Simon Ward, Robert Johnson, James Bailey, Chris Rawstron, Matthew Guest, Jonathan Wright, Thomas Hammond, Matt Wong, James Cross, Dan McCartney, Claudia Haywood, Liam Bradney, Hamza Rehman and Charlotte Higgins.
