Meet Our Supporters: Nazakat Ali
‘I feel we must all make efforts to support this great cause in whatever capacity we can, and participating in this challenge was my small effort.’
Nazakat Ali participated in the Imran Khan Cancer Appeal’s Three Peak Challenge (3PC) this September and raised £575 for needy patients in Pakistan. Here’s what he had to say about the experience when we caught up with him.
Nazakat, thank you for participating in our Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, and for all your efforts. Did you enjoy the experience?
“It was a great experience! The walk was well organised. Tremendous support was provided throughout the climbs. And the food was nothing less than a luxury buffet.”
What was your motivation for choosing to support Imran Khan Cancer Appeal?
“Shaukat Khanum Hospital provides free cancer treatment in a poor country like Pakistan for more than 70% of its patients. The hospital needs 39 billion rupees every year to fund cancer care. I feel we must all make efforts to support this great cause in whatever capacity we can, and participating in this challenge was my small effort.”
We understand you’ve completed similar challenges before. How did Y3P compare?
“I never did 3 peaks together before. I was told that the third peak gets really tough, so I was really excited to reach the top without much effort. I felt that I had achieved my goal. But then, walking down the third peak to the finish line was very tough. Eating the food after the Pen-y-Ghent trek was quite a treat though. They really make a nice chicken curry!”
Would you recommend this challenge to others?
Yes, of course. I have already done so. So many of my friends are impressed and want to do it themselves next year.
Thank you, Nazakat Ali and all the participants who scaled three peaks in one day to raise funds for our needy patients. If you’d like to take part in Y3P next year, keep checking back to our Challenge and Events page where we’ll be broadcasting dates and details for our 2024 challenge very soon.Challenges and Events VOLUNTEER FOR IKCA
