Snowdonia Charity Challenge
Raising money for Regain
The Challenge
Our challenge involved cycling 40 miles, climbing Mount Snowdon and canoeing on Lake Gywnant, all in one day! None of us have ever taken on a challenge of this scale before.
The Charity
Regain was chosen as it's a relatively unknown UK charity but the work it does changes people's lives as it helps paraplegics regain their independence. A £5000 donation would buy a specially modified electric wheelchair, or 3 sets of computers and voice-recognition software to help people communicate.
The Training
All of the team members have been taking on training by going to the gym at least 3 times a week and going on cycling rides of 20+ miles at least once a week. This had been a hard challenge for us as a company, we've had to drop a team as several of our team mates had to drop out for various unavoidable reasons. This has badly affected our fundraising total but we're still confident we can hit our £4000 target.
