A team of walkers organised by InterManager will be putting their best foot forward this weekend (July 16-17th) when they climb 24 peaks in 24 hours!
Set in the UK’s picturesque Lake District, the 24 Peaks Challenge is a two day trial over a walking distance of 31 miles which tests participants’ endurance and physical strength to the limit as they encounter difficult terrain, lengthy ascents and steep descents along the way.
The InterManager team, which includes staff from maritime companies Seagull, Headland Media and the Nautical Institute, will be raising money for Seafarers’ UK – a leading maritime charity which provides support to seafarers from the Royal Navy, the Merchant Navy and fishing fleets and their dependants.
Led by InterManager Secretary General Kuba Szymanski, the team comprises Jennifer Crowther, Anthony Royle, Regina Bindao, Bjarke Jakobsen and Hannah Merton.
Kuba explains their motivation: “All of our companies have a long history in providing services to the maritime industry and owe a great debt to those who live, or whose loved ones have lived, the hard life at sea.”
He adds: “It’s a tough challenge and a great charity!!”
The team originally set a fund-raising target of £5,000 and are delighted to have already exceeded this – now they want to see how much further they can go!
