Sarah Trenter, of Woodbridge, led the intrepid climbers around the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales.
The fundraisers reached the peaks of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in a time of 25 hours and 50 minutes – just outside the 24-hour challenge.
Mrs Trenter, 33, a nurse at the hospital, organised the trip to fundraise for three causes which have helped her six-year-old son Charlie, who has been diagnosed with severe haemophilia.
The fundraising total of £5,000 will be split between Addenbrooke’s Hospital, The Beads of Courage UK, and Molly Olly’s Wishes.
Mrs Trenter said: “We all found it very tough, but we were really pleased with our time. The elements; the wind and the rain, really slow you down and changes the mood of the team, and climbing Scafell Pike was mostly in the dark.
