Construction firms take Care challenge

CARE International Construction Challenge 2015 by Brendan Foster Photography

Teams from firms including ISG, Aecom and Bechtel, among others, are set to battle each other in the annual Care Construction Challenge.

Rutland Water, a reservoir and nature reserve in the East Midlands, will see the teams take on the challenge over a marathon-length course on 24 September.

Foot, bike, boat and brain are the essential components for the course, which offers both physical and mental challenges that the organisers liken to the Channel 4 programme The Crystal Maze

“Team spirit is always high, the emphasis is on fun and the competition is tough with teams fiercely competing to be the fastest around the course and the highest fundraisers,” said Care’s head of events and community fundraising Kathryn Betts.

“It’s a chance for colleagues to bond with their colleagues outside of the office and strengthen their communication skills, as well as giving their support to Care’s humanitarian work across the globe.”

Care deploys emergency teams to areas hit by natural disasters and conflict to help construct shelters for survivors.

For those seeking to avoid a quiet weekend by joining this year’s event, sign up here.
