WHY SEND YOUR STAFF ON A CHALLENGE EVENT?

Action your CSR and send your employees out on the trip-of-a-lifetime.

✅ Put your people first.

✅ Encourage personal development.

✅ Enhance team cohesion.

✅ Support your charity of choice.

✅ Instill mental & physical health for your employees.

At Choose a Challenge we believe that stepping out of comfort zone and taking on a company challenge is the most thrilling, exciting and life changing opportunity you can embark on.

Our story began in 2008, with our two founders Dan and Charles, summiting Kilimanjaro and having a dream to share their passion for adventure and charity with as many people as possible. 

Over the past 10 years we have raised over £20 million for incredible causes; with your help we could double this figure. This would contribute to greater global health and wellbeing, as well as supporting local economies and providing more work in rural areas, it will  highlight your company’s philanthropic public image.

The whole experience was amazing from registering for the trip through to standing on top of Africa’s highest mountain in the dawn light. It really felt like Choose a Challenge were with me every step of the way

FOR GOOD CAUSES

When taking part in one of our corporate challenges, you can opt to fundraise for a cause close to home. Nothing fosters a greater sense of accomplishment than raising thousands for charity and simultaneously doing good for your company. We currently work in partnership with eight charities. These charities represent a diverse range of causes, and have dedicated teams who have the time and resources to ensure that you and your team reach your fundraising potential! To find out more about these causes, check them out here.

If your business is partnered with a charity that you wish to fundraise for, please get in touch - we’re always on the look out for more charity partners so would love to get this arranged.

CORPORATE BENEFITS

Charity challenges are an amazing way to contribute to your Corporate Social Responsibility.

Team Cohesion: Challenges improve personal relationships within the team.

These moments create a strong bond of shared experience which will continue in their working relationship, making them feel happier and more supported in their workplace.

The training, fundraising and execution of the challenge will allow for an exciting and rewarding goal to work towards; engaged employees are vital to progressive work.
