Chairman and Managing Director embarking on charity mountain challenge
Adrian Sealey and Alex Perkis will be climbing the highest single free-standing mountain above sea level in the world to raise funds for this year’s chosen charity, Family Compass.
The pair have been in training and will head out to Tanzania at the end of June where they will attempt the 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) climb to the top of Africa’s highest mountain.
Kilimanjaro is the highest single free-standing mountain above sea level in the world: 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. It is the highest volcano in Africa and the Eastern Hemisphere.
This is the first in a series of challenges for TCi’s Board where they hope to raise as much as possible in support for Family Compass. Following the Kilimanjaro expedition, Financial Director, Alex Slee is doing a skydive from 15,000ft, Project Directors, Callum Bowden and Chris Pyne will complete a punishing Tough Mudder and Construction Director, Jim Capron is tackling a “Scandi Swim” (Running and swimming along a marathon coastal course).
Each of them will be well outside their natural comfort zones and will be engaging in lots of preparation and training beforehand. Please support them in whatever way you can. Family Compass is a great cause, providing benefits all over the South West.
