Konnect Take on the 3 Peaks Challenge 2022
Your comfort zone is a dangerous place to linger too long in. Without challenges and opportunities to push into our boundaries, we start to stagnate and to calcify.
We know this, and we know that this year is our time to push into some different boundaries to the ones we stretch on a day-to-day basis. We are delighted (and ever so slightly nervous!) to announce that we will be taking on the National 3 Peaks Challenge in order to test our mettle as a team, and raise money for The Lighthouse Club Charity.
This endurance challenge tests participants as they trek and climb the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales… all back to back with the aim to complete them all within a 24 hour time frame. Not only will this be a huge personal achievement for each individual involved, the training that it will take for each participant to prepare will be hugely beneficial in terms of physical and mental wellness. It will also test our teamwork and resolve as a tribe as we take this on together.
We are taking the opportunity to raise money for our chosen charity of 2022 – the Lighthouse Club. This is close to us as they provide emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support within our sector, to construction workers and their families across the world.
The challenge is set, the bar has been raised and we have a tight training schedule with which we are preparing for the event on the 19th August.
10 brave Konnect recruiters from across our 3 offices are answering the call!
The challenge in numbers:
Ben Nevis – Height 4413 ft. – Trekking distance – 9 miles
Scafell Pike – Height 3209 ft. – Trekking distance – 6 miles
Snowdon – Height 3560 ft. – Trekking distance – 7 miles
That’s 11,182 ft. to climb across 22 miles within 24 hours!!
The business is subsiding the cost of involvement for the team so that we can all focus on fundraising for the Lighthouse Club, and our training schedules!
