In memory of close family members and to raise funds for Cancer Research UK, John O’Brien, Managing Director of the Fibrax Group of Companies, completed a challenging 35-mile walk in the hills of North Wales.
The Llangollen Round is a 35-mile circular route that takes in the picturesque views of the Vale of Llangollen whilst challenging participants to a gruelling 2,000 metre ascent! John and his friends completed the walk over two days, traversing heather moorland, limestone grassland, coniferous forests and open mountain tops.
Commenting on the challenge, John said:
“Cancer seems to be one of those things that affects us all at some stage. We completed the Llangollen Round in memory of much-loved family members who were very fond of this area. We were proud to support Cancer Research UK in this way.”
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. It is committed to fighting cancer by finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it to save more lives.
To date, John has raised an impressive £2,150 for the charity. If you would like to support this fantastic cause, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/john-o-brien20.
