Botesdale Dentist Reaches Dizzy Heights on Charity Climb
A dentist from Botesdale reached the dizzy heights last week as he successfully scaled some of the UK’s highest peaks as part of a charity challenge.
Dr Martin Sulo joined a team of fellow dental professionals for the Three Peaks challenge, which involves reaching the summits of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon in 24 hours. The group took on the gruelling climbs in aid of the Make a Wish Foundation.
Dr Sulo, owner of Botesdale Dental Practice, said the venture was a “no brainer” when he was first approached and he is really glad he agreed to take up the challenge. The team took just 12 hours to climb the mountains and raised more than £15,000 in the process.
Dr Sulo said he was chuffed with the achievement and honoured to be part of the successful team. He said the conditions were difficult, especially at Ben Nevis, and the trek was physically and mentally challenging. However, everyone pulled together and it was a great team effort.
The Make a Wish Foundation is a charity that aims to make the dreams of children with life-limiting and terminal illnesses better.
The dental group was supported in their ventures by Denplan. They were provided with food and fluids throughout the day and the insurance firm also arranged shuttle services to take the intrepid climbers from one base to the next.Join this Discussion
