Video highlights: ABC Three Peaks Challenge
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.
