The memory of five-year-old Niamh Curry proved the inspiration behind eight police officers completing the Three Peaks challenge in 24 hours.
Three months ago, they were touched by the plight of the youngster who was battling a rare cancer.
But days after launching their plans, Niamh died on May 20.
The officers agreed to go ahead and climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales, in memory of Niamh.
PC Steve Clark said: “When we got to the foot of Snowdon we didn’t want to do it as we ached.
"But it was a case of Niamh inspiring us as she suffered for so long and we were only going to suffer for three and a half hours getting up and coming down the mountain.”
They hope to have raised £2,000 to aid other children with the disease.
