UK Challenge announce Beefy’s Charity Foundation will remain as our Charity Partner
About Beefy’s Charity Foundation
Beefy’s Charity Foundation supports 4 individual charities targeted at brain tumours, Batten’s Disease, Juvenille Diabetes and Blood Cancer UK. The Charity was established in 1985 by “Beefy” himself many years ago when Leukemia was a death sentence to many.
“I am delighted that our foundation will be one of the UKC charity partners this year and we look forward to working closely with Dave, his team and all the competing companies to help put some fun into raising funds. This has always been something very personal to me ever since my first long walk which seems to make it a great fit with the UKC” – Lord Botham
How will the UK Challenge help raise funds?
Teams in the UK Challenge are able to join in the fundraising efforts for Beefy’s Charity Foundation by integrating participation into their workplace CSR programmes or by creating dedicated charity initiatives. Over the years, the UK Challenge has raised over £5 million for charity causes.
The partnership with ‘Beefy’s Charity Foundation’ will allow participating teams and organisations to support projects that are easily identified and aligned with the values of the UK Challenge.
The UK Challenge is delivered and owned by Marco Polo Events (MPE); a company dedicated to providing outdoor team-building opportunities.
