2019 Peak District Challenge - Part of the Ultra Challenge series

Congratulations to Jenny Crooks, Kingston Hospital Research & Innovation Manager, for successfully completing the 2019 Peak District Challenge on 13 – 14 July. This 100km challenge took a tough figure of 8 route through Derbyshire’s finest scenery. Although Jenny loves both a challenge and walking, it was mentally very tough and walking through the night was a new experience. Developing blisters along the route also added to the challenge.

Thanks to all who generously supported Jenny’s efforts helping to raise nearly £1,400 to support the hospital’s growing research programme. These funds will help purchase equipment enabling the hospital to take part in national and international research projects, as well as to support education and training, enabling the team to develop its own research projects to meet the unmet needs of patients.
