Michael Cox, Professional Standards Manager at Beaufort Financial, has a condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa which means that he currently retains a visual field of 5%. So, Instead of taking part in the National Three Peaks Challenge with his colleagues, Michael will be undertaking a ‘No Peaks’ Challenge to raise money for charity Dreams Come True. His challenge will involve him walking twice the distance of the Three Peaks Challenge.
Michael, who is registered as blind says: “Whilst I won’t be walking up any mountains, I’m convinced I will actually do a fair bit more than 46 miles, but it seemed a nice number being double the distance of the Three Peaks. Dreams Come True is a fantastic charity which enriches the lives of children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions across the UK by making their dreams come. This may be through medical or sensory equipment or a trip of a lifetime. Fulfilling a dream provides a positive focus and empowers young people and their families with new enthusiasm and strength to deal with the ongoing daily struggles of illness, grueling hospital treatment and sometimes sad loss.”
