Chem-Dry’s Mountain Challenge Countdown
With less than four days to go, the countdown has begun as a group of individuals from carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning franchise business Chem-Dry® get ready to climb Kilimanjaro, the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, for charity.
To help raise funds for the business’ Charity of the Year - Asthma UK, the participants will climb 5,985 metres over six days, encountering various climates, including rainforest, moorland, desert, and finally freezing temperatures towards the summit. Living conditions will be basic and uncomfortable at times and the individuals will also have to contend with high altitude.
Over the past six months the participants have thrown themselves into gruelling training walks and intense gym sessions which will stand them in good stead to reach the summit, Uhuru Peak.
New to the world of mountain trekking, Chem-Dry UK head office employee and challenge participant, Leanne Maronitis said:
“I can’t believe there’s only days to go until we will be embarking on the biggest challenge of our lives so far! I am really excited now and starting to feel the butterflies already! We have a great team and it’s going to be an amazing adventure!”
Iain Cassidy, Asthma UK Corporate Trusts and Statutory Team Manager, commented: “Asthma UK is delighted that Chem-Dry is taking on the Kilimanjaro challenge in aid of our charity. The event is a step into the unknown for the group and we are appreciative of the extensive preparation and training the team have already undertaken.“
The challenge is expected to raise over £8,000 and has been generously supported by business contacts and participant friends, work colleagues and family. Main corporate sponsors include LDC (Lloyds Development Capital), Terry Waters French Polishing, KC Communications, Johnsons The Cleaners, Praxis42, Lakestar Media and Dri-Eaz Ltd.
