Catch 22 Charity Challenge
Catch 22 has successfully completed their 7th Charity Challenge. The walk, over May Bank Holiday, from 2nd to 4th May, was tackled by 27 colleagues, friends and clients of Catch 22, and covered 45 miles of the Cornish coastal path. Two walkers, Catch 22s director Simon Aspinall and walking companion Kevin Wideman of GVA Grimley, set off on April 20th to walk the full route, comprising almost 300 miles and 58,000ft of climb almost twice the height of Everest! and finally marched into Penzance at the end of their final leg on Sunday, accompanied by an admiring band of supporters. Proceeds from the Challenge will be distributed between Scope, for people with cerebral palsy, Breast Cancer Campaign and The Lords Taverners, giving young people a sporting chance.
Vince Parker, Managing Director of Catch 22, commented:
We look for a major challenge every other year, such as the 3 Peaks, the Welsh 3000s and the Pembroke Coast, and found one to match anything weve tackled in the past. Simon and Kevins keenness to accomplish the entire distance proved inspirational to all of those taking part and we applaud their effort to the rafters. They were still going strong at the end and there was no need to carry them over the finishing line!
