Ochresoft’s Ben Nevis Challenge

Ochresoft’s Ben Nevis Challenge

On Saturday 11th May, determined Ochresoft colleagues will be heading to Scotland in order to take on the challenge of summiting the mighty Ben Nevis, in support of Parkinson’s UK charity. 

As we prepare to tackle the highest peak in the UK, we invite you to be a part of our inspiring journey and make a difference in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. 


About Ben Nevis 

Ben Nevis isn’t just a mountain; it’s a towering testament to nature’s grandeur and a symbol of resilience in the face of adversity. Rising 1,345 meters above sea level in the stunning Scottish Highlands, Ben Nevis presents a formidable challenge to even the most seasoned climbers. Its rugged terrain, unpredictable weather, and steep ascents make it a true test of physical endurance and mental strength. 

But it’s precisely this challenge that motivates us to push ourselves to new heights. Our team at Ochresoft is committed to conquering Ben Nevis, not just for the thrill of adventure, but to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those affected by Parkinson’s disease. Every step we take up the rocky slopes of Ben Nevis is a step towards raising vital funds and awareness for Parkinson’s UK.

Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition. Anyone can get Parkinson’s, young or old. In the UK, around 153,000 people are already living with Parkinson’s.
