Story

Can we get a round of applause for our team who are in training to complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge to raise money for Luke’s Lads on 4th July 2020! This 6-man powerhouse will be taking on Ben Nevis, Scaffell Pike and Snowdonia and must complete all 3 within 24 hours.

Our ethos at Luke’s Lads is about working together to make sure every member of the team is valued and supported and this challenge is an excellent way to demonstrate that in a practical way. Training for this exhausting endurance test will consist of building stamina, strengthening muscles and a time commitment which will impact heavily upon the teams’ personal lives – all because they are passionate about men in the UK dropping the stereotype and speaking out when they need help. In recent years, there has been an increase in male suicide rates and statistics show that almost 18 out of 100,000 take their own lives in the UK each year.

This massive test of endurance will push our guys to the limit and they will need to work together to stay mentally strong through exhaustion that can only be experienced when attempting 3 mountains within 24 hours. Are they crazy, you ask? The simple answer is (yes, sorry) no, but having had personal experience of loss through male suicide, they are prepared to put themselves through this physical and mental challenge as a team and are committed to pushing, pulling, cajoling and downright bribery to get each other successfully to the end – just as they do in the Luke’s Lads sessions.

All money raised will help us keep Luke’s Lads sessions running on a weekly basis and allow men to access a free workout which helps the brain release endorphins (the feel-good chemicals), and is followed by a wellbeing session where support and advice is available from like-minded others and our wellbeing facilitators who are Mental Health First Aid and Suicide Intervention trained.
