The Ten Y Fan event was created in 2014 to raise money for Harri, who at just age 4 was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Initially Ten Y Fan was intended as a small sponsored event, however after learning of Harri’s story, many more people wanted to help. After launching the event on social media over 100 people joined in to climb for Harri.
The inaugural Ten Y Fan was amazing and far exceeded all expectations. In addition to those climbing, the event was boosted by tireless volunteers, supporting the climbers and making sure all were safe and the event went smoothly. These included the registration team, manning the tent throughout the night to monitor climbers and student physios who came along to attend to any aching limbs. Hot food was even provided by Harri’s grandparents, and a local family made hot drinks and soups from their campervan. The Ten Y Fan community came together to support each other during the marathon challenge. Ultimately 140 climbers took part, with 11 completing the full 10 climbs, resulting in raising over £18k!!
