PINNACLE MAN MAKES IT TO THE TOP FOR CHARITY CLIMB
Heath Freeman, managing director of leading crewing firm Pinnacle Crew, more than lived up to his company’s name in August, by taking part in a charity fundraising triathlon that included climbing the 1,085-metres to the peak of Mount Snowdon.
As part of a two-man team, Freeman raised £1,400 money for Pinnacle’s adopted charity – Naomi House Children’s Hospice – by first swimming the 12-miles length of Lake Windermere in five-and-a-half hours on Friday, August 13. Then, after a short stop for lunch, it was on the road to cycle 50 miles to North Preston, where the team spent the night.
By 7.30 a.m. the following day, they had begun cycling again, this time completing 100 miles to Wales.
Sunday, August 14 saw a further cycle ride of 30 miles to Mt Snowdon, where the final element was the climb to the pinnacle of the mountain and down again, finishing at 3.30 p.m.
Freeman, who was part of a relay team that swam the Channel in the fastest time in 2009, said of his latest successful challenge:
“It was a very gruelling but satisfying undertaking, and to have raised so much money for a very worthwhile cause made it even more gratifying.”
