Ben Stubbs to climb 3 mountains in aid of GB Deaf Football

by / Wednesday, 14 March 2007 / Published in FDFC News

On April 28th—29th Fulham DFC player Ben Stubbs will be doing the Triple Peaks Challenge which involve climbing the 3 highest mountains in Great Britain in 24 hours. The 3 highest Peaks that Ben will be climbing are Ben Nevis (Scotland — 1344m), Scarfell Pike (England — 978m) and Snowdon (Wales — 1085m).

Ben is doing the challenge with four of his work colleagues, from the gym where he works. Ben has generously decided that he wants to raise money to help send Great Britain Deaf Football to the European Championships this summer. As the FA do not recognise Great Britain Deaf Football, they are self funded and rely on donations and sponsorship to keep the squad going.

Quote from Ben Stubbs; 'Me and my work colleagues have been planning and thinking about this challenge for months. After a careful consideration and planning we have decided that we want to us test our fitness to the ultimatum.

There is a lot of planning and training to be done, we can't afford to misjudge our navigation on the mountains as it could potentially ruin our task of completely all 3 peaks in 24 hours.

I have been thinking long and hard about who to raise money for and I decided that I wanted to help Great Britain Deaf Football with their quest to win the European Championship this summer despite the fact that I don't play for them.'

By doing that I hoping to raise as much money as possible.'

Should anybody want to sponsor Ben or make a donation please see Ben Stubbs or Nick Beese for more details.

Ben will be keep us updated with his Triple Peaks challenge so watch this space!
