Kate Lambert is walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for the Rheumatology Department at Airedale, which is very close to her heart. Kate was diagnosed with Vasculitis (GPA), a rare autoimmune disease in 2016 when she was 19, about to start her second year of university. She is raising money to show her appreciation to the staff from the Rheumatology Department, particularly Dr Shabina Sultan and Kelly Tempest, who supported and reassured her throughout her diagnosis, helping her to feel more positive about her condition.
As she was born and bred in Yorkshire, Kate has decided to walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks with her Dad. She wanted to give herself something challenging to aim for, and also because she finds exercise important, both physically and mentally. Their aim is to complete the challenge in less than 12 hours, depending on how much they stop to have snacks to keep them going.
We’re looking forward to seeing how Kate gets on with the challenge.
