CARE and Computer Weekly are delighted to announce the launch of the 2009 CARE 3 Peaks Challenge, which we hope will attract even more brave teams from across the industry to beat last year's figure of £100,000 to support aid and development agency CARE International.
The 2009 CARE 3 Peaks Challenge will see teams taking on the three highest peaks in Scotland (Ben Nevis, 1,334m), England (Scafell Pike, 978m) and Wales (Snowdon, 1,085m) in the target time of 24 hours. It is no mean feat.
At the end of the weekend there will be a well-deserved celebratory dinner and awards, followed by a party for those who still have the energy. The event combines team-building among colleagues and networking across the industry with the overall aim of raising money for an important cause.
How to enter
The CARE 3 Peaks Challenge, scheduled for the weekend of 13-14 June 2009, is open exclusively to corporate teams of professionals from the IT sector. The teams of between four and six walkers will be given the task of climbing the UK's three highest mountains within 24 hours. If you and your colleagues have what it takes, visit the CARE Challenge website to register your team. Alternatively, call the CARE Challenge team on 020 7934 9470.
