UK Challenge announce Teenage Cancer Trust as their exclusive charity partner

LONDON 23 JULY 2018: Marco Polo Events, a company dedicated to providing outdoor team-building opportunities, and the owner of the UK Challenge, an iconic event that takes place over three days involving over 500 company executives has appointed Teenage Cancer Trust as their exclusive charity partner for the 2019 event to be held in Snowdonia.

Over the next 12 months many of the teams entered in the UK Challenge will join in the fund raising, by integrating participation into their internal CSR programs or dedicated charity initiatives. The partnership with TCT will allow teams to see how monies raised will help young people with cancer in the UK.

MPE CEO, David Moran, commented;
I expect this partnership to be our best yet as we know that fund raising is a very personal thing and with TCT we will get to see the fruits of our labour and make a difference in an area that gets little attention. Cancer will affect all of us at some point in our lives but to get impacted when you’re a teenager can be extra stressful for both the individual and the people around them. The team at TCT do a great job to support young people with cancer.”

Adding to those comments, Peter George, Chairman of MPE said;
The companies and individuals that take part in the UK Challenge are amongst the best and most motivated to be found in the workplace, I know from personal experience that taking part is one of the best investments a company can make in its people and having a meaningful charity partnership that our competitors really relate to will resonate throughout their whole organisation.

Kate Collins, Chief Executive of Teenage Cancer Trust said;
We’re incredibly excited about partnering with UK Challenge and being a part of this fantastic event in 2019.  We can’t wait to work with them and all the teams to raise vital funds for young people facing cancer.  Right now, for every young person Teenage Cancer Trust reach, there’s another we can’t. The money raised through our partnership will help us provide young people with cancer the best treatment, care and support – and ultimately ensure that no young person faces cancer alone.
