Staff from IT recruitment firm Harvey Nash are the latest group to sign up for CARE International's 3 Peaks Challenge.
They will be joining other IT teams attempting to climb the highest mountains in England Scotland and Wales in 24 hours, tackling Ben Nevis (1334m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m).
CARE International is the UK's third biggest international development charity, playing a crucial role in helping developing countries tackle their problems. It is also part of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and is working to help people affected by the recent earthquake in Haiti.
Team leader and corporate accounts manager at Harvey Nash Joanne Oakley, said, "There is a lot of anticipation around the event, and maybe a little bit of apprehension too. We are very excited. I have always wanted to do the 3 Peaks. I love physical challenges and this is also encompassing the IT industry while raising money for a very good cause, so it is the perfect event."
CARE International is looking for more IT volunteers to take on the 3 Peaks Challenge, which takes place on 12-13 June 2010.
It is hard work, with teams needing to raise £6,000 and plenty of training to do before June, but previous year's teams have said it is worth it. The challenge helps team cohesion and gives everyone a worthwhile goal to aim for.
