UKECaresTeamatthepeakofSnowdon(left to right): Nicola Choon, Gloria Lee and Shawn YipIn April 2015 twenty students from different universities in UK signed up for one of the biggest challenges of their lives. They aimed to climb the three highest peaks in UK in 36 hours, Ben Nevis in Scotland (1344m), Snowdon in Wales (1085m) and Scafell in England (978m).

This adventurous fundraiser named UKEClimb for Kids (click here for a YouTube video), was organised by Gloria Lee and Nicola Choon, executives of UKEC, the United Kingdom and Eire Council of Malaysian students.

The successful challenge covered 42 kilometres in wintry conditions.

In May 2015 ACT found out that it would receive a total of £5000, raised by the students, to be paid over two years.
