Kaplan Mountain Challenge 2013 – Help us Raise Money for Charities!

Following on from last year’s successful event (Kaplan Mountain Challenge 2012) we are at it again! Kaplan Mountain Challenge 2013 is definitely happening and 50k at killer pace is all but waiting. Team of four called Health Raiser has been assembled to take on the challenge, list of, equally brave and stupid, members is as follows:

  • Amit P Kundalia
  • Chris Kennard
  • Adrian Kielbowicz
  • Christopher Lee Smith
  • Apart from hiking aspect of this event there is fundraising involved too. We aim to raise as much as we possibly can but the bare minimum required is roughly ~£300 per member bringing the total to about £1200 per team. Selected charities we will donate all collected funds to are:

  • Helena Kennedy Foundation – http://www.hkf.org.uk
  • SCT: Homelessness, Poverty, Drug & Alcohol Addiction – http://www.sct.org.uk
  • Donations are being accepted through Virgin Money Giving page so please donate what you can, we appreciate any amount!

    Running totals for last year donations were £2452.50 so there is our target to aim at!

    Kaplan Mountain Challenge 2012 – Help Us Raise Money For Charities!

    On 18th of June as a part of Kaplan Mountain Challenge I will be hiking in beautiful Snowdonia National Park (home to the highest mountain in England and Wales!) to help raise money for four already chosen charities:

    Ty Hafan – http://www.tyhafan.org

    Child Victim of Crime – http://www.cvoc.org.uk

    Every Child a Chance – http://www.everychildachancetrust.org

    Helena Kennedy Foundation – http://www.hkf.org.uk

    The hike itself is a nice short stroll for 50 kilometers up and down the mountain so it should be fairly easy (yeah right!)

    Red Hot Techie Peppers got picked as a team name (nice and  not geeky!), here  is the link:


    Now in order for this to happen we would like to raise at least £2500 which then can be donated to above charities. Please help us to make this happen! You can  donate by clicking on the below link:

    Please donate what you can, amount doesn’t matter – even if its £1!
