Well done Harv & team!
Our inspirational CEO, Dr Emma Egging, is taking on her own JET10 challenge in 2021, to shine a spotlight on the vital work that we do in our 10th anniversary year. Emma's 10 events began with a gruelling Grantham Canal Ultramarathon on April 18th, and will culminate in the London Marathon in October. Her next event is to take on the gruelling 20-mile Edale Skyline Challenge; a ten-hour circular climb in the Peak District which takes in the Great Ridge and Ladybower Reservoir as well as the iconic summits of Kinder Scout, Win Hill and Mam Tour. With a total ascent of almost 1,400m, Emma is being joined on her latest JET10 adventure by six members of the JET team, and this will be the furthest many of them have climbed in a single day. Each event she is undertaking represents a personal challenge to Emma, and she needs your support more than ever. EMMA'S EVENTS 1. Grantham Canal 33-mile ultramarathon (April 18th) 2.
