Net Media Planet and Commission Junction beat the Welsh 3000 to raise money for charity.

By Luke Judge, Business Development Manager, Net media Planet

The first mention of this charity event was made over lunch between Luke Judge, Dan Thut and Hildegun Iversen from Net Media Planet, Qua Media and Commission Junction respectively. Maximuscle offered to sponsor the endeavour giving the organisers much needed support and backing. Their confident “I’d be keens”, soon became solid admissions for the weekend event. Some months of training followed, with a couple of solid training walks in the rolling hills of the South Downs.

Katherine Francis from Commission Junction joined us and before we knew it, the kit list was being ticked off, the bags packed, and the hire car started up.

The sun hadn’t risen yet and we were ready for the off. A short car journey, some very well needed Viper energy bars were consumed as breakfast thanks to the generosity of our sponsors at Maximuscle. And we were off. Ahead of us 15 peaks over 3000ft each spread over 32miles.

For the pictures of the whole event, search ‘Commission Junction Welsh 3000’ and enjoy the photos with accompanying sound track.

Fast forward to the last peak, we achieved our goal of hiking all 15 peaks in less than 24hrs of walking. Every ache and pain had been worth it, the feeling of elation at completing the final peak was memorable. In the process we raised over £700 for Meningitis UK.

Thanks to Commission Junction for organising this outstanding event, a really great challenge.

Thanks must go to Maximuscle for their fantastic support, without which I don’t think we could done. The many protein bars, Viper energy bars, and Viper energy drinks fuelled us to the finish and aided our recovery on the long journey home. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone setting out on such an endeavour.

And finally thanks to the fantastic generosity of all who supported us in our Welsh 3000 Challenge 2009. Thank you.

Enjoy the photos.
