This isn’t the first time Managing Director Nick Rinylo and team have challenged themselves for Heartlands Cystic Fibrosis (a foundation very dear to them). They completed the 3 peaks challenge in 2017 and the 14 peaks challenge last year, both totalling at nearly 30 miles. It goes without saying that this year they pushed themselves even harder, travelling almost triple the distance covered in previous years
Beginning their nearly four-day journey at 4.30am on day one, the team completed a very impressive 24 miles in nine hours before resting up for day two, where they planned to cover even more ground: an intense 27 miles. Unfortunately, the landscape they had left to cover, whilst beautiful, was much more challenging and so the group were set back a bit, racking up 24 miles on days two and three. Despite the recommendation that fit walkers should allow six or seven days to complete the walk, the team covered the last 12 miles on day four, fighting their exhaustion to get to the end. “The experience was a brilliant one, watching five friends come together for good cause and each overcome their own battle,” says Nick Rinylo, “We would recommend Hadrian’s Wall to anyone. It’s a challenge, of course, but another great reminder of the history we have in Britain and the amazing countryside we have on our doorstep. It means a lot to be able to raise money for the Heartlands Cystic Fibrosis Centre.”
In the last three years ASSISTED. have raised a grand total of £3618 for Heartlands Cystic Fibrosis Centre.
