Harrogate's Miss Yorkshire to take on Three Peaks for charity

Harrogate's Miss Yorkshire is set to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks in aid of a mental health charity.

Chloe McEwen, AKA Miss Yorkshire, is lacing up her boots and preparing to conquer one of the Dales' toughest challenges on Monday 22nd April.

She'll be fundraising in aid of mental health charity Mind.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks involves scaling Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough, covering a distance of 24 miles (38.6 km) with an elevation gain of over 5,200 feet (1,585 meters).

21-year-old Chloe said she is passionate about promoting the positive impact that exercise and spending time outdoors can have on mental health.

She said:

“Being Miss Yorkshire is a fantastic platform to raise awareness for important issues.

“Mind in Harrogate District does incredible work supporting people with mental health struggles, and I’m excited to take on this challenge to contribute to their cause and support them in sharing their message.”

Chloe was crowned 'Miss Yorkshire' following a competition in October last year.

And in preparation for her new challenge, Chloe has been getting her steps in and has been out walking in the local area.

Chloe, who has bipolar disorder, is keen to share her journey to shed light on this important cause.

Her passion for participating in this project stems from her personal belief in the positive effects of exercise and being outdoors on mental health.

Having overcome her own challenges, Chloe is enthusiastic about using her story to highlight the importance of staying active for mental wellbeing.

The funds raised by Miss Yorkshire will directly support Mind in Harrogate District’s vital services, which include one-to-one support and group activities for those experiencing mental health difficulties.
