Snowdon Rocks (Taking place annually since 2007).
Many of you will know the story of how Snowdon Rocks began. Just over a decade ago ago, when Mike was receiving treatment in the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre, he made a pledge to climb Snowdon as soon as he got well enough to do so. As he looked at the mountains of Snowdonia from his window in the hospital, Mike would feel ever more determined to get fit enough to hike. It was here that his plans to give back to those who had cared for him, and who continue to do so, and to help others with a cancer diagnosis first began to form. It was here that the ideas behind Love Hope Strength were born.
Over the past ten years, since Mike’s dream of getting back on Snowdon after his leukaemia diagnosis and intensive treatment, thousands of people have now summited Snowdon as part of LHS’s Snowdon Rocks. Hundreds of thousands of pounds have been raised to support people with cancer and many life changing friendships have been created on the mountainside. In recent years, partnerships have been built between LHS and the NHS charity, Awyr Las, and international charity DKMS, which has seen the numbers of people taking part in Snowdon Rocks (and the incredible impact of the fundraising taking place), increase dramatically.
So, after a hugely successful ten years of summiting Snowdon in all weathers, Mike decided to make some changes to Snowdon Rocks which are designed to make the day even more special.
With a new hike route planned; more music and adventure; new important partnerships; a desire to open up the day to different age groups; introduce more people to new areas of Snowdonia; and recognition that we need to reduce the adverse environmental impact that challenge events are having on Snowdon itself, we now invite you to take part in Snowdonia Rocks.
“It’s not always about the summit, but how far we’ve come.”
