Dominating the skyline above the Yorkshire Dales are three peaks; Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen y Ghent. Covering 24 miles and a 1,700 metre ascent, you will walk through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and see how its spectacular fells tower over the surrounding moors and countryside. Your challenge is to complete the three peaks in 12 hours, so that more people with sight loss and other disabilities can build on their independence and lead a fulfilling life.
For a very achievable fundraising target of £100 you can have a great time, achieve a personal goal and help people with sight loss and other disabilities go beyond expectations.
For any visually impaired participants we can offer you a free place for a support walker, just contact firstname.lastname@example.org to provide their details once you have signed up.

Walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks in aid of Henshaws and you will support people like Ebonie. Ebonie turned 18 just before Covid 19 hit us and her world changed. Ebonie has Downs syndrome and autism and she was considered clinically vulnerable during the pandemic. Socially isolated not just because of her disability but because she was high risk, Ebonie’s mental health and ability to express herself deteriorated. Her mum, Caroline says it was like Ebonie went back 10 years in development in 2 years. Unfortunately, the much needed college placement Ebonie was expecting last September didn’t happen due to staffing shortages.
Ebonie’s mum contacted the Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough run by Henshaws. It was a familiar and local place that Ebonie had visited many times over the years as a family. Many of the Art makers knew Ebonie by name, and every summer at the beach festival Ebonie would join the Art Makers up on stage singing and dancing. Luckily Ebonie was able to join in our drama and music workshops to help ease her back into small group activities alongside her friends here. This has been an absolute turning point for Ebonie as its first time in over 2 years she’s mixed socially and creatively with other disabled adults and carers. From starting in October last year, her confidence has soured and she took to the stage again signing and singing in a group song at the Art Makers concert last month. Ebonie now attends four different workshops every week with the carers her mum has recruited and trained.
Saturday was most definitely an experience I will be remembering for a long time. Very hot and I just can't believe I actually completely it. Just over 12 hours but I'm still happy with actually completely the 3 peaks. The mountain guides were great, especially Natalie for getting us through it all with words of encouragement. Met some lovely people.
