Posted by: Rachal Division: 123 Decathlon Challenge
The 2012 Decathlon Challenge is well underway, with the first of ten sporting events occurring on the 21st of February- The Badminton Challenge!
Sponsored by CCV, The Badminton Challenge takes place at the Westgate Badminton Centre, and will allow participants to play in mixed double games, with the opportunity of playing against a celebrity or international standard player!
R&M employees are also in training for the R&M sponsored “Walking Event” taking place at Manor Farm Country Park, Southampton, on the 25th of March. With over 50 entrants taking part from R&M, the organisers are anticipating that there will be over 400 participants in this mixed ability event.
The event caters for all levels of fitness and provides a variety of courses from 5 to 20 kilometres and with a barbeque, bouncy castle and climbing wall being laid on it promises to be a great family day out!
The 123 Decathlon Challenge aims to raise £100,000 for local charities – The Rainbow Centre, Wessex Cancer Trust and The Rose Road Association through a series of 10 sporting events to celebrate the 2012 Olympic Year. With over £25,000 already raised the organisers are well on their way to achieving this goal!
