On Saturday June 21st 2008 (The Longest Day), Mike Peters, the internationally acclaimed singer of Welsh rock and roll band The Alarm and current world record holder for the Highest Concert performed on land at 18,500 feet on MT. Everest (Everest Rocks October 21st 2007), led a procession of doctors, nurses, fans and supporters on a charity fundraising walk to the top of Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa (the highest point in England & Wales), to perform Snowdon Rocks 2 - a very special acoustic concert at the summit followed by an acoustic finale at Y Galeri, Caernarfon the very same evening.
All proceeds go directly to the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, Bodelwyddan and the Alaw Unit at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor where Mike Peters (a two times cancer survivor),was diagnosed and successfully treated for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) in 2005/06. Mike Peters is still undergoing long term maintenance treatment at the Alaw Unit with a view to finding a cure under the watchful eye of Dr. David Edwards who has been Mike's haemotologist throughout both of his cancer battles. Dr. Edwards will also be accompanying Mike to the summit of Snowdon.
Snowdon Rocks 2 is promoted through the LOVE HOPE STRENGTH Foundation, a charity formed by Mike Peters to raise awareness and funding for cancer care both locally and globally, with a further series of world wide events that will continue throughout 2008. In particular, 'Peru Rocks', which will take place between October 8th and 17th in the form of a 4 day trek through the High Andes with acoustic concerts at the world famous Macchu Picchu Citadel and finale in the Peruvian capital city of Lima.
Last year's event on Snowdon raised a staggering £43,000 (far more than Mike Peters ever imagined), and some of the additional funding was distributed throughout cancer care organisations in North Wales such as Ty Gobaith, St David's Hospice in Llandudno and St. Kentigerns Hospice in St. Asaph.
