The Ben Nevis Challenge!
Updated: Mar 6, 2020
Sports Connections Foundation are once again grabbing our fundraising buckets, this time for a day of wall climbing, at The Serpentine Green Shopping Centre in Hampton, Peterborough. We aim to climb Ben Nevis - 1,345 metres in height - then turn those metres into pounds to help vulnerable and disadvantaged children in the UK.
The 2 person climbing wall supplied by Warehouse Climbing centre in Gloucester, is 5
metres high, and will be manned by a team from the company to make sure all safety requirements are met. There will also be fun mini challenges for the kids - you can have a go at kicking a ball into our giant ProKick goal, which measures the speed of your kick so you can compare it to the professionals! Or you can enter one of our fun competitions for your chance to win one of many prizes including Dominos Pizza vouchers and VIP tickets to a Premier league match!
There will also be sports personalities attending on the day, to impress us with their own kicking skills, and help with the climbing target.
The children you will be helping by supporting this event will be truly grateful - a couple of them are hoping to attend the event so you may even meet the little heroes! The charity help disadvantaged and vulnerable children with our Inspire Through Sport mentor programme, which helps to lead these young children away from a life of crime and poverty. Some of the children that SCF help, face life threatening illnesses every day of their lives, or have life limiting conditions meaning they are confined to wheelchairs etc. But they keep smiling and living life as much as they can, so having something to look forward to and share memories with their families, such as a Sporting Wish to meet their fave football team that SCF can provide, means the world to them.
