On Friday 23rd June the Team Aim High (From Give as you Live) completed the challenge of virtually reaching the summit of Mount Everest part of the BizFit Couch to Summit Challenge.
The climb was a lot more intense than we had expected, with many of us really underestimating what the challenge had in store, and for some of us even with our physical capabilities from the first leg.
Thankfully we did have a great team, especially ‘mountaineer’ Matt Hallett who reached over the target with 14 climbs which was incredible. It was safe to say the boys definitely carried out the majority of the success as the girls did suffer (sore knees ALERT haha) but all in all we did put in a fantastic team effort!
What was the goal?
The goal was for up to 60 business people, working together in teams of 10, to reach the virtual summit of Mount Everest by repeatedly climbing the 71 metres (which is what’s required to cover the 8,848 metres between sea level and the summit) elevation that goes from the British Camp Car Park to the British Camp Fort of the Malvern Hills.
Teams came together to raise money for the MS Society There is no cure for MS. Yet. But research is progressing faster than ever before. MS Society is making real strides and with your involvement it can, and will take them further to finding a cure.
Until the MS Society finds a cure for MS every penny raised makes a difference!
We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated as we managed to raise over £330 for the MS Society!
