Eight managers from Uponor UK competed in the Snowdonia Challenge 2013.

Success for Uponor in charity challenge

Published:  26 July, 2013

A group of eight managers from Uponor UK recently completed a gruelling cycling, rowing and hiking challenge in Snowdonia in honour of charity partner REGAIN.

Despite the intense heat and two minor injuries, all of the group – split into two teams of four – managed to successfully complete the challenge, which involved cycling 40 miles around the base of Mount Snowdon before canoeing across Lake Gwyant and ascending the 884m peak on foot. The group completed the challenge in just under 10 hours

Uponor UK has so far raised £3,405 of its £4,000 target for REGAIN, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of those who have become tetraplegic through sporting accidents.

Chris Greaves, head of markets and offerings at Uponor UK, said: “Given that we’re all getting on a bit, the 2013 Snowdonia Challenge certainly put us through a physical test. I am very proud of everyone for completing it.

“On behalf of the company I would also like to thank all of those who have sponsored us; REGAIN does such valuable work within the community so it gives us great pleasure to be able to support them in this way.”
