A duo from Pharma Nord – national sales manager Rasmus Henriksen and marketing executive Trevor Pill – has raised over £500 for Children’s Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) at Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital by completing the Three Peaks Challenge.
Henriksen and Pill managed to reach the summits of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in less than 22 hours.
“The challenge was tough and we were relieved to reach the top of the three peaks in 21 hours and 35 minutes,” commented Henriksen.
He added: “It is great to be supporting such an important charity in our native North East. Many of our customers suffer from heart conditions and much of our research focuses on how supplements such as Bio-Quinone Active Q10 may be able to strengthen the heart and improve survival among those with heart failure.”
Chris Gray, head of fundraising for CHUF, said: “We’re so indebted to Rasmus and Trevor for their efforts and to all their friends and colleagues at Pharma Nord who have supported them. The fantastic sum raised will be put to great use on the Children’s Heart Unit at the Freeman Hospital, which treats babies and children from all over the UK.”
