David Sadowski: 24-HOUR FINISHER 2017 3-Peak Challenge

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

About Your Experience:

"It was two years ago when I first imagined completing the 3 Peak Challenge in 24 hrs on the hardest routes-- Cactus to Clouds, Vivian Creek and Bear Canyon. Two years ago it was a difficult period in my life with many painful transitions. I often thought about happier times and one of the most meaningful events was the A16 3 Peak Challenge. In 2014, I completed it in 3 days on the hardest routes. It was a transformative experience. A new and even greater challenge now drew me back. Two years ago I never could have imagined how much the pursuit of this goal would change me. Achieving this goal is something I'll always remember, but even more I'll cherish the lessons learned and the bonds formed in the two years preceding it."

Challenge Highlight:

"I linked this challenge to a fundraiser benefiting a close friend of mine, Kaitlyn Bell, who has been battling cancer. For nearly 4 years she's fought, but things took a harsh turn about a month ago. I saw an opportunity to help, a way to inspire hope in Kaitlyn and generate support from the community around us. The #3Peaks4Kaitlyn effort was a great success."
