On Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September an adventurous team of 15 neuromodulators scaled Brecon Beacons range from West to East over two days to raise awareness of Essential Tremor and fundraise for the National Tremor Foundation.

The team raised over £2500 which will go towards supporting people with Essential Tremor.

The Boston Scientific Team were joined by NTF Ambassador Anthony Murphy who scaled the Three Peaks for the NTF last year.

Paul Wilkins from Boston Scientific said: “Overall a successful event – ideal conditions and clear visibility matched with a high dose good spirits and camaraderie continued throughout the course.  Traversing West to East with multiple ascents and decents we were very glad we remembered to pack the magical Compeed blister packs…phew! We were fortunate to have Anthony Murphy NTF ambassador join us for our event too. Anthony got stuck in and was a valuable team member from the start.  All our team agreed this was a great opportunity to challenge ourselves and raise awareness for a wonderful charity.  We’d like to thank Dave Talbot and his support team Lisa and Chris from Adventure Events who guided us.  A special thanks to too all our family, friends and colleagues who made very generous donations.  A final thank you to our generous sponsor Boston Scientific who made this possible.” 

Following on from this success on 1st October in Liverpool, Boston Scientific held an exhibition table at the NTF Essential Tremor Open Day.

The National Tremor Foundation would like to congratulate the team.
