Team Challenge 2015 Highlights...

Firstly a big huge well done to all of our wonderful staff for making 2015 truly an epic year! 

We have received such amazing feedback from our participants about how our staff are so on point when it comes to organisation, friendly service and creating quality challenges we couldn't be prouder. 

For anyone considering taking on a challenge, you will be in safe hands from start to finish! 

So, to round off the our Blog for 2015 we thought we would ask team challenge for their highlights of the year which saw 4000 people participate and where we raised over £4.3 million for various charities. 

Ann, Director of Action for Charity and Dream Challenges

My Highlight for 2015 was the Regain Sports Award Lunch – Action for Charity Have been organising the lunch for 15 years and it has been a delight To have witnessed over those years the joy of tetraplegics at the lunch Giving them an opportunity to all meet up and share their ups and downs Over the year whilst enjoying a lovely meal and having a few drinks!

It was particularly poignant this year to witness The Tetraplegic Achievement in Sport award being presented to Nathalie McGloin who became tetraplegic at 16. Here is the picture of her being Presented the award – looking so modest – considering she is the Only female racing driver with a spinal injury in the UK.  It was  A great highlight as she was so happy to receive the award.

Calum, Director of Action for Charity and Dream Challenges

My highlight was definitely Trek Uganda in Jan/Feb. Attached is a picture of a friend I made along the way who carried my walking stick in return for several Galaxy Minstrels!

Mike, Director of Dream Challenges

My Highlight for 2015 would have to be the success of the Ben Nevis Charity Challenge Event. In only its second year it was a great achievement to have 111 teams participating in June and 48 teams in September.

Susan, Operations Manager

My highlight was Race the Sun Brecon Beacons in June where, after a very successful event,  we celebrated lovely Trish’s 60th birthday in style.

Abigail,  Finance Manager

My highlight was seeing all the ladies warming up for Ride the Night at Windsor racecourse.   The atmosphere was wonderful, so many inspirational women in once place looking so bright and colourful (lots of pink!) ahead of their challenge. A very emotional time.

Chrissy, Operations Assistant Action for Charity

My highlight of the year was at our Race the Sun Brecon Beacons event when Ann pulled up alongside a team of cyclists and proceeded to ask them why they did not have their helmets, and told them they did have one at the start even though they tried to tell her they hadn’t. They eventually decided they would buy one at the next town and they looked very sheepish, only for Susan (on the right in the picture) to see their race numbers pinned onto their t-shirts stated they were taking part in a completely different event and were not part of our event. Ann apologised an drove off to our next location. At least she was thinking of safety first no matter whose event!

Sophie, Challenge Event Organiser Dream Challenges

My highlight is going on the LTFC in the Jordan Desert as this was my first international event for Dream Challenges. It was an amazing event, saw beautiful views and trekked with inspiring people.

Haylie, Challenge Event Organiser Dream Challenges

My 2015 highlight would have to be Tree planting on Trek Borneo! Feeling Ive contributed to the environment in a small way.

Hannah, Challenge Event Organiser Dream Challenges
