London, Mar 25 (ANI): Pippa Middleton and her brother James raised 12,000 pounds for charity by completing a 56-mile cross-country skiing course.

The professional party planner sent a round-robin email to her friends after finishing her Swedish challenge in seven hours 13 minutes 36 seconds - and securing an impressive 412th place out of 15,800 racers.

"We made it! James and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your incredible support for our cross-country ski challenge in Sweden," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying in the email.

"We are truly grateful and appreciate the kindness and generosity you have all shown.

"It was one of the best sporting adventures we have both participated in and we couldn't have enjoyed it more," she wrote.

Entrepreneur James, 23, finished 26 minutes ahead of Pippa as they raised money for the Magic Breakfast charity, which provides free breakfasts to poverty-stricken children.

Pippa, 28, also told how eating a breakfast of porridge helped them complete the race.Incidentally, it was porridge that morning at 6 am that helped us make it to the finish line so we couldn't be bigger fans of a hearty breakfast!" she said.

The Duchess of Cambridge's younger siblings are now keen to sponsor friends in similar events.

"Thank you so much again and please let us know if any of you are doing any charity challenges in the future - we would love to support you," she added. (ANI)
