Although the 24 Peaks Challenge 2013 took place over two months ago, the fundraising totals for the eight teams that took part are continuing to increase. A massive £30,940 has been raised so far for COINS Foundation and its projects.
The challenge saw teams climb 24 peaks in the Lake District, covering 32.5 miles over 24 hours. Three of the eight teams came in under this time, despite the boiling weather. Each group pledged an amount they thought they could raise and all managed to exceed their targets by a long shot.
The highest fundraisers for the challenge were KMI, who have so far contributed £8,790 for COINS Foundation, after pledging to raise £7,000. They also finished the challenge in the fastest time, racing over the mountains in a speedy 22 hours and 11 minutes.
The support department represented COINS Global and has so far raised £2,650 through “Souper Thursdays” (making soup for all staff and selling this with a bread roll for lunch), sunglasses sales, a pub quiz and more!
A huge “Congratulations” and “Thank You” are due to all the teams who participated and everyone who supported those taking part.
Keep your eyes peeled for next year’s challenge!
