There is lots of support available throughout the challenge and some fantastic events that you can sign up to: Bubble Rush, Skydive, Great Wall of China Trek, etc. The challenge which runs for 4 months (June to September) will culminate in a glittering awards ceremony in October.

A company that helps people prepare and cope financially is once again sponsoring East Lancashire Hospice’s 2019 Corporate Challenge for the third successive year.
Organic Insurance, based at One Cathedral Square, Blackburn, sponsored the first two challenges and were so bowled over by the amount raised, they have agreed to back it again this year.
Chris Ridehalgh, a director at Organic, said:“It’s an honour to be able to support the Corporate Challenge for another year.“ I was amazed at how much money was raised by the businesses who took part last year, a fantastic £44,000.
“Being in the insurance business, a lot of what we do is about helping people prepare and cope financially with difficult situations. We can’t do the caring part, but East Lancashire Hospice can.”Chris added: “Most people know someone who has had to use the hospice, or may need to access one in their lifetime, and the money raised from this year’s challenge will help to ensure it's there to help families who need it. It's a charity we feel we can really make a difference with.”
Organic Insurance was proud to move last year to its new home in the heart of Blackburn’s historic town centre.
It believes the move will be the catalyst for the growth of the business and that its ultra-modern and iconic address at One Cathedral Square will be integral to the future plans for the group, its people and the local community.
