Race the Sun - We've Done It
In September, two teams from Provectus completed the Race the Sun 2009 challenge in support of Action Medical Research.
They are a charity who have been making medical breakthroughs for over 50 years – including helping develop the UK polio vaccine, ultrasound scanning in pregnancy and the hip replacement operation – saving lives and preventing disease and disability. This exciting triathlon-style challenge saw teams of four compete to cycle 50miles, climb Helvellyn and canoe Lake Thirlmere starting at sunrise and finishing by sunset – racing the sun. We are very proud that all our team members successfully completed the event in 13 hours and 6 minutes (including breaks).
Thank you to everyone who sponsored us, especially our "official" sponsors, Maximus and Wollastons. We really appreciate your support and the money will be put to great use by Action Medical Research.
