The Teide Challenge

On July the 25th leaving at 2.30 am Karen Clack is organising a sponsored walk up Mount Teide to raise money for Accion Del Sol dog refuge in Granadilla. The walk starts at 3am and it takes about 4 hours to reach the summit where you can see the sunrise giving the most amazing views. The climb down is about 3 hours. You will be escorted by the Atlantic Whale Foundation guides who will divide the group into two allowing for the real fit people to plow ahead whilst the rest can take a gentler approach. 

You do need to be fairly fit for this. Karen is asking businessess or individuals to collect a minimum of 50 euros each in sponsorship which is realistic and achievable given the present economy. So far Karen has on board Tenerife Fitness, Tenerife Insurance Services, Sunway Properties, Blevins Franks, Pit Team Sur,  Accion Del Sol, The Tenerife News and a few individual people joining in. If anyone else would like to be involved or too be a sponsor then please contact Karen - on 687905511
