The aim of the LIA President's Challenge is for teams to raise money to fund a new hospital unit for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The challenge is to put together a team of eight and raise sponsorship of at least £500 each. You will then spend 48 hours competing in a number of events at Barton Hall, a specialist activity centre in Torquay, Devon. Activities include:
There are a number of other events that will test teamwork and imagination.
For any team, time spent away from the office can be as crucial as time spent in it. Ideas flow more freely, people bond more readily and problems are solved more easily. However, the real reward is knowing that you are helping teenage cancer patients and making a great difference in their lives. Enjoy a range of activities and help raise cash for charity.
To raise an average of £500 per individual.
Book yourself on the event at a cost of £157 (this includes two nights' accommodation in a private en-suite room at Barton Hall, all meals and activities).
Be prepared to be challenged and have fun.
Do I have to be physically fit?
While most of the activities require some physical exertion, it is more about using both the physical and mental strengths of the whole team. The points system allows for a wide variety of fitness levels and the challenge cannot be won on fitness alone.
