Whilst Caerphilly town revelled in the glory of the Olympic Torch Relay, four employees of Caerphilly County Borough Council were tackling a challenge of Olympic proportions.
On May 26th Youth Workers Lee Kabza, Caroline Millington, Michelle Challenger and Clare Jones tackled the Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge, which involved climbing Snowdon, Cader Idris and Pen-Y-Fan all in one day!
Setting off on their first ascent at 4.30am the group climbed for 13 hours, finally crossing the finish line at 9pm.
Spurring them on was the support they've received, raising over £2500 between them for Cancer Research; the Youth Forum's chosen charity.
Councillor Rhianon Passmore, Cabinet Member Education and Lifelong Learning congratulated the team, "What a fantastic example to set to the young people whom they work with. The team have trained hard and raised a significant amount of money for the Youth Forum's chosen charity, Cancer Research. A huge congratulations to the team."
