"Last year when I was 9 someone on my street died of cancer and I wanted - I saw the Macmillan nurses coming to help her - and I wanted to raise money and I heard about the three peaks challenge when I was doing Pen-y-Ghent and decided I wanted to do it."

– Eve Maylor, 10-year old fundraiser.

She'll climb the three highest peaks in Yorkshire: Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. In total she'll walk 24.5 miles and climb 1200 meters in 12 hours.

"I don't know if any other 10-year olds have taken it on but it's going to be a real challenge both for her and myself. It involves completing 3 of the highest peaks in Yorkshire within 12 hours. It's about 25 miles all together so it's going to be a real challenge for both of us."

– Andrew Maylor, Eve's dad
