CARE launches Ben More Challenge in Scotland

CARE launches Ben More Challenge in Scotland

Overseas aid and development agency CARE International has announced the launch of their very first event taking place exclusively in Scotland, which aims to raise at least £50,000 for its humanitarian work. The CARE 3 Peaks Scotland Challenge is scheduled for the weekend of 23-24th June 2007.

The Challenge is open to corporate teams of 4-6 walkers, from any sector. It tests participants to push their physical boundaries to the limit, by climbing Scotland’s 3 Ben More (“Big Hill”) mountains – Ben More Crianlarich (1174m), Ben More Assynt Inchnadamph (998m) and Ben More Mull (966m) – all within 24 hours. Each team must also raise £5,000 for CARE.

Teams will be supported every step of the way during their preparations in the run-up to the event, however, with on-hand training and fundraising support from CARE’s in-house Challenge Team, who are also running the event.
