    Hi all!

    The team who work on Diabetes.co.uk have decided to raise money for JDRF by climbing Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in the UK outside of Scotland. We'll be climbing via one of the tougher routes on 3rd August 2013!

    Our target for donations is:

    £1500

    So dig deep and donate! All donations are appreciated and just remember - it's all for a good cause!

    Click HERE to donate!

    (PS: If we reach our target, there'll be a special surprise :lol:)

    I love how you've worded this

    Because no one would be silly enough to climb Scotland's munroes right?!?

    Snowdon is a beast of a climb and since doing Nevis 2 years ago it is next on my list.

    Good luck everyone!

    Haha yes! We're all terrified but excited at the same time - Personally, my highest climb was Glyder Fawr in Snowdonia. I thought that was tough, but it seems like nothing compared to Snowdon :shock:

    JDRF stands for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. You can find out more about the charity and what they do here: http://www.jdrf.org.uk/
