CARE International is looking for teams from across the construction industry to take part in the CARE Construction Challenge on 3 July.
Taking place in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the event will raise funds to support CARE’s global fight against poverty. Teams from every level of the construction industry will cover the distance of a marathon on foot, bike and water.
A team from NCE is already training for the event, along with 18 other teams - including Balfour Beatty, Bam Nuttall, Costain, Wilmott Dixon, Union Square, Barratt David Wilson Homes, McArdle Group, Laing O’Rourke, CLM, Arup and Atkins.
Bam Nuttall team leader for the event Kevin McGrath is taking part because he feels the cause is so worthwhile.
“The pain we will endure from this challenge is a fraction compared to the challenges faced by many people in poverty stricken countries such as Haiti, every day of the week,” he says. McGrath’s team are already in training.
“We’re determined to give it our best shot,” he said. “Being part of this event has been great for teambuilding.”
