3 Peaks – Scotland-England-Wales… USA!

By November 20, 2008No Comments

What a serendipitous juxtaposition between the COINS Foundation and Grand Dynamics! Check this out. Imagine a challenge through the mountains of the Scottish Highlands, moving to Scafell Pike in the Lake District, and finishing at the foot of Snowdon in North Wales.

The 3 Peaks Challenge is climb of the highest peaks of Scotland, England and Whales in 24 hours. For the last 5 years Coins has made the 3 Peaks Challenge into one of the largest team fund raising events in the construction industry. Check it out- the event is awesome!

Each team raises funds to compete and then all the funds are donated to the COINS Foundation – and have been distributed to the Cure Foundation, Care Foundation, Habitat for Humanity & PEGS.

Last year the event had OVER 1300 people involved, with 170 teams and raised over $560,000

Conversations with COINS are about RECREATING the event in the USA by climbing the three high peaks in the Northeast – such as New York (Mt. Marcy) Vermont (Mt. Mansfield) and Massachusetts (Mt. Greylock). Mountain Endurance, anyone??

The vision is to create an annual fall event (starting in 2009) that will build over the years to come to be THE PREMIERE FUNDRAISING and CONSTRUCTION NETWORKING event in the country – in conjunction with an amzing annual mountain endurance event. I can see the CFMA teams now…what an adventure it will be!

The COINS 3 Peaks Challenge is the classic mountain challenge exclusively for the Construction Industry. You will compete alongside other teams from your own industry to take on the challenge.
