Date: 1st September 2016
Today marks the start of Keysource’s charity month. Whilst we take part in charity events throughout the year, for the month of September the Keysource team will be running, rowing, climbing, baking and drinking lots of hot beverages to raise money for key charities across the country.
In order to raise as much money for these charities as possible we would be really grateful for all donations. You can find out more about the events and how you can support us below.
Kicking off our charity month our first event is The Nuts Challenge. To truly get into the swing of things we start with the hardest event – an assault course mud run. Teams can complete up to 4 laps of the course, covering a gruelling 28km!
Not strangers to dedication and hard work, the Keysource team have been training hard over the summer to get to grips with the vast amount of obstacles, mud pits, rope swings and water pits to give us the best chance of coming out on top!
Our fundraising for this event is going to St Catherine’s Hospice, a local charity that provides end of life care and support, helping people achieve the best quality of life they can.
Day two sees the Keysource team take to the water and compete against local groups and businesses in 40ft dragon boats. Battling for the Dragon Boat Festival Trophy (we’ve been so close over the years!) the Keysource team will be paying homage to David Hasselhoff and the upcoming remake with a Baywatch theme (pictures to follow!)
As with The Nuts Challenge all fundraising for this event will support St Catherine’s Hospice in West Sussex.
You can see the 2014 Keysource Hawaiian team in action below:
On the 11th September, Keysource will be joining Team DCA on the London to Brighton bike ride. Covering over 58 miles and raising to over 814 feet at its highest point, the Team are raising money on behalf of Bike 4 Cancer – a cancer respite charity, in memory of Simon Campbell-Whyte.
Rounding the month off slightly quieter than it started, Keysource will be holding a cake sale in our HQ. Previous events have been highly successful with some amazing creations and gravity defying cakes – it’s clear some of our engineers have been inspired by The Great British Bake Off!
