Video highlights: ABC Three Peaks Challenge
Remember when we told you that team ABC Managed Services were taking on the Three Peaks Challenge in support of the charity The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice? Well, we did it!
ABC managing director, Steve Burgess, has long been a big benefactor for charities. Each year, the company sets a mountainous challenge to raise money for charity. This time around, Steve had some big ideas – and by big, we mean seriously big. So when he suggested trying the 3 Peaks Challenge in support of the incredible work done by The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, the team was quick to mobilise.
Little did we know, it would be a serious uphill battle! Of course, one doesn’t simply gather a team together then pop off for a quick 23 mile walk, uphill for a total of 10,052 feet. It takes a lot of training, hard-work and planning.
As a technology managed services provider, months of logistical pre-planning were nailed down. Alongside this? Training. Heavy training. Imagine Steve and the ABC boys in a Rocky training montage and you’ll get the picture.
Now we’ve successfully scaled the highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, here’s a video recap our rocky adventure.
Supporting Donna Louise charity
This wasn’t just a great test for the individuals in our team – it wasn’t even just a fantastic team-building exercise … it was a chance to raise a mountain of money for charity. Thus far we’ve raised over a whopping £10K and counting. Thank you to the team and all those who donated – it was the leg up the mountain we needed.
And we’re still collecting! Donna Louise is a fantastic cause – so visit our Just Giving page and help them do their amazing work.
