Sign Up For Snowdon Challenge

20 January 2016

Wesolowski To Lead Group For Community Event


The first two people to sign up for the challenge will also win a free copy of Football Manager 2016 signed by Wesolowski!

Each participant is required to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship, with the money assisting the Communities disability programmes.

The group will be travelling down on Tuesday 12 April with the challenge taking place the very next day.

This money covers insurance, a qualified leader, one-night accommodation, dinner and breakfast as well as transport to and from Snowdonia.

It costs £180 which includes a £35 deposit to be paid with the registration form before the end of January 2016.

There are currently 9 spaces left for people to join Mr Wesolowski and his team on the challenge.
“I have not had the best of luck with injuries over the last 15 months and I am disappointed I have not been able to make the contribution to the club that I wanted to when I first joined Shrewsbury Town Football Club,” said Mr Wesolowski.

“With this in mind I have challenged myself to raise money for the club’s fantastic disability programme delivered by Shrewsbury Town in the Community.

“This is my biggest challenge yet.”

But the Snowdon Challenge looks set to be his toughest one yet.

Last year, he cycled over 90 miles to watch his team mates seal promotion with victory at Cheltenham Town, and this year he was part of a group of 40 that raised over £1900 for disability teams in Shrewsbury with a sponsored walk.

In his two years at Shrewsbury, Mr Wesolowski has been hampered by two serious knee injuries and has set himself community challenges as a way of involving himself with the club.

Shrewsbury Town physio Chris Skitt has thrown his hat into the ring as well as offering his fellow challengers FOUR FREE circuit training sessions to help in preparation of the challenge, with RAF Shawbury also offering support in the build up to the challenge.

Members of Shrewsbury Town in the Community have already signed up to the ‘Weso Challenge’ which will see the Australian lead a 20-strong group as they embark on a 20-mile bike ride, a four-hour trek up Snowdon and to finish it off, a two-hour canoe ride back down it.

Shrewsbury Town footballer James Wesolowski is leading a group into the Welsh mountains on April 13 to take on the Snowdon Challenge, and is looking for people to join the cause.
