Self-Funding Inspiration: Sophie's Story

Approach & Inspiration

I came up with the idea that I wanted to complete a personal challenge however while doing this I wanted to see whether I could gain sponsors by completing this challenge. I have always loved the outdoors, walking with my family and dog so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to take on the challenge of a lifetime. I wanted to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks! So in order to plan the expedition I planned the date and time we needed to set off, I then set up a page to make people aware of the challenge I was facing myself with.

Achievements & Challenges

We began the journey at 7am and at this point, I published a post on Facebook keeping people updated on the journey. From this post, I received a lot of feedback wishing me good luck which really motivated me to complete this challenge.

Having completed two of three peaks, the energy was low however as a team with my mum and dad we need to keep the momentum going and make it to the third peak. […] Not only did I have a real sense of self-achievement I had managed to raise £560, which made me very proud.

Feedback & Review

I would definitely complete the challenge again, although my body aches for days post the walk. The sense of achievement was like no other and I was delighted at how proud my family and friends were at the achievement after seeing many people congratulating me on social media platforms.
