With two mountains down and one to go, Tom Perkins, left, and Martyn Olden sprint to the team's van after their descent of England's Scafell Pike. The firemen's Three Peaks effort raised money for three local charities in their Chippenham hometown: Care Rowde and Chippenham Gateway, which offer programs for the mentally handicapped, and Naomi House, a children's hospice.
