Gauntlet down for IT sector

Leading aid and development agency CARE International is looking for teams of intrepid colleagues from across the IT industry to take part in the third CARE 3 Peaks Challenge, on 12-13 June 2010.

The challenge will see teams from the sector tackling the three highest peaks in Scotland (Ben Nevis, 1,334m), England (Scafell Pike, 978m) and Wales (Snowdon, 1,085m) all in the target time of 24 hours.

In 2009, QA completed the challenge in the fastest time of 23 hours and 18 minutes, and the gauntlet is down for any team who thinks they can beat them! Better still, last years event raised £50,000 to support CAREs poverty-fighting work.

Head of CARE Challenge Neil Munro said, The funds raised by teams on previous challenges are already achieving fantastic things around the world. The IT sector is one of the most fun and enthusiastic sectors we work with. It would be wonderful to top last years fundraising total and were confident the IT sector is up to it!

The CARE 3 Peaks Challenge offers corporate teams a fantastic teambuilding and networking opportunity, with a well deserved dinner and awards following the challenge. Experienced CARE Challenge staff will be available from the day teams sign up, to offer advice and support with fundraising and training.
