Climb every mountain

This photo and caption appeared in the UK Jewish News
We wrote here some weeks ago about the striking success of another (yes, another) mountain-climbing undertaking done by supporters of the Malki Foundation and for its benefit. [See our October 15, 2015 post: Three Peaks Update | The video!]

As families across the United Kingdom settle down to a quiet and warm Sabbath this evening, those who get the Jewish News (UK) will see this fine piece of promotion, congratulating the lovely people who scaled the UK's three tallest peaks in October 2015 - an exhausting and intense experience which produced tangible results for the fine work done here in Israel by the Malki Foundation.

The National Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the UK's three major peaks: Ben Nevis / Beinn Nibheis (1,344 m or 4,409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland. Scafell Pike (978 m or 3,209 ft), the highest mountain in England. And Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa (1,085 m or 3,560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales. According to Wikipedia, the total distance they walked is estimated at 42 kilometres (26 mi) or 44 km (27 mi) with a total ascent of 9,800 feet (3,000 m).

Once again, we say "Job well done!" to James Harari, Simon Gold, Elaine Gold, Marc Jackson, Scott Sedar, Francesca Harris, Adam James Kramer, Shalom Solomon, Jonathan Schneider. Your success is our success.
