Helping out with a Monster Challenge…

Posted: March 3rd, 2014 - Category: Charity Support - Author: Rav

We are proud to announce our corporate sponsorship – supplying t-shirts, beanies and fleeces for participants and volunteers, to support Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres flagship fundraising event, Monster Bike and Hike.

The event takes place on the bank holiday weekend of Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th May 2014 and takes in some of Scotland’s most awe inspiring scenery, starting under the shadow of Ben Nevis in Fort William. Participants then head out along the Caledonian Canal and the Great Glen Way taking in views of Loch Ness en route to Inverness.

Chairman and Co-founder of 1612 Design, Rav Singh said ‘’I am delighted to be working with Maggie’s Monster Bike & Hike. I participated in the event myself two years ago; I managed to complete the Bronze stage so I know how challenging but thoroughly rewarding taking part is, so you don’t need be an Olympian to take part!”

Senior Event Manager Claire Benjamin said: “It takes a great deal of determination to take part in Monster but by all accounts it is a hugely rewarding experience both physically and mentally. We pull out all the stops to make sure that Monster is a bank holiday weekend to remember for all participants and volunteers. It is inspiring to see the teams coming over their chosen finish line and the satisfaction and joy in their faces.

Over 600 people will make a Monster difference for people with cancer by taking on Maggie’s stunning outdoor adventure in the Scottish Highlands! This 24-hour team event challenges our participants to bike 31 miles and then to hike 9, 23 or 41 miles to our Bronze, Silver or Gold finishes. Maggie’s supports its bikers and hikers from start to finish making sure they have an unforgettable experience on this exhilarating and demanding course. We wouldn’t be able to run this event without the amazing support of our corporate partners such as 1612 Design. This year we will be selling branded Beanie Hats to our Support Team members and giving each participant their very own Monster t-shirt thanks to the support of 1612 Design’’

2014 will be the eleventh year of Maggie’s Monster Bike and Hike, with the event having raised over £5 million for Maggie’s to date. Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends. Built in the grounds of NHS hospitals, the Centres are warm and welcoming places, with professional staff on hand to offer the support you need to find your way through cancer.
