We're walking to Ohakune, New Zealand - the home of world's largest model carrot - to raise much needed funds for the Children's Adventure Farm Trust!
Ohakune is 11,452 miles away and we've given ourselves from 1st April until Christmas Eve to get there...and back again!
That's a whopping total of 22,904 miles we've got to cover!
Between the 24 employees at Carrot Pharma, we'll walk, run, swim and cycle our way to this small town on the North Island of NZ.
FOR OUR NEXT CHALLENGE WE'LL BE CLIMBING SNOWDON ON THE 26TH SEPTEMBER!
The Children's Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) is especially important to us at Carrot Pharma Recruitment as it was set up by the late father of one of our colleagues.
The work they do is incredible, offering disabled and disadvantaged childen the opportunity of a holiday away from home. The Farm includes adapted accommodation, sports hall and facilities, adapted park and farm animals, all set within beautiful Cheshire countryside. We're looking to raise much needed funds to help with improvements to their Sensory Room - anything you can give in way of a donation will be hugely appreciated by both ourselves at Carrot Pharma and the staff and children at CAFT.
