2015 Vet Charity Challenge Launched
We need you, you, you!
Get fit, get involved. The Vet Charity Challenge 2015 needs you! Get a team of four people together from your practice or business to raise much needed funds for a number of charities. If you’re ready to challenge your mind and body and blow away those cobwebs, read on.
The Vet Charity Challenge is a one-day event which pulls together a series of physical tasks with team building challenges along the way.
Working with your team, you will complete a course which involves walking (or running if you’re in a hurry...), off-road biking and kayaking. Sounds straight-forward? Here’s the fun bit...
YOU decide your own route and your own pace. Each stage has a range of checkpoints and each checkpoint has a value. The clock is ticking and your team needs to accumulate as many points as possible within the time limit.
Fitness, strategy, orienteering, problem-solving... we challenge you to find your inner Bear Grylls. It’s a lot of fun and an awesome way to bond with your buddies.
Ideally placed in the north midlands, at an easy-to-reach venue with great motorway and rail links.
Walton High School, Walton on the Hill, near Stafford, Staffordshire is the setting for the 2015 Vet Charity Challenge. This high achieving specialist science school setting in Staffordshire is located within easy reach of the famous and stunning Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the setting for a great deal of this year's challenge.
A wide range of bed and breakfast accommodation is available nearby.
As well as raising funds for some really deserving animal charities, it’s a really fun way to build team spirit within your practice or business.
You can take part whatever your fitness level and we’ll provide training guidelines along the way. It’s also a cool PR opportunity and great for building your practice’s community profile.
The challenge takes place on Saturday 26 September 2015, so you’ve got plenty of time to limber up, get your tactical heads on and raise as much sponsorship as you can.
It is easy to enter your team of four people - find out how and enter online here.
The entry fee is £60 per person and we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £400 per team in sponsorship.
