[O]n Saturday 11th August something amazing will be taking place in Wainwrights Yard, Kendal. Joe Robinson, owner of newly opened CoreWorx Gym on Sandes Avenue, will be taking on the challenge of box-jumping the accumulative height of the four highest peaks in the Lake District: Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Joe will jump onto a 24-inch box 6,270 times to reach the staggering accumulative height of 12,539 feet – all in 12 hours and all for local disability charity Bendrigg Trust.
Fundraising Officer for Bendrigg Trust, Sarah Garman, says; “This is such an amazing and unique challenge. Walking the four highest peaks would have been tough enough and Joe has gone ten steps further! We’re so grateful to him for raising funds for Bendrigg.”
Joe says, “Myself and the team at CoreWorx wanted to raise awareness and funds for Bendrigg’s amazing cause. We have an application pending with Guinness World Records so you never know we might create a new world record!”
Starting at 6am you can cheer him on, or challenge him to a box jumping duel yourself, in Wainwrights Yard. There will also be a selection of gym equipment to try with competitions and prizes for the overall daily winners. Joe is one of Bendrigg Trust’s “40 Fundraisers” celebrating their 40th anniversary and hopes to raise £1,000.
