Nor­wood chal­lenges the sporty

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE - JC RE­PORTER

NOR­WOOD HAS launched a new pro­gramme of Chal­lenges which the chil­dren and fam­ily char­ity hopes will gen­er­ate more than the £1.3 mil­lion raised from the 2007 events.

Good sports are be­ing chal­lenged to bike rides in Is­rael and South Africa and an Amalfi trek tak­ing walk­ers along one of the world’s most beau­ti­ful coast­lines. For the more am­bi­tious, there’s the Aconcagua climb in Ar­gentina, in which par­tic­i­pants will scale the high­est moun­tain in the South­ern Hemi­sphere — 6,959 me­tres.

Closer to home, there is a 60-mile bike ride from Lon­don to Hove, a 10 or 20-mile wa­ter­side walk in Sur­rey and Golf Aid, where the chal­lenge is com­plet­ing rounds at Went­worth, The Grove and Moor Park in one day.

Head of Chal­lenges Ian Tate said the pro­gramme was de­signed to tax body and mind, cater­ing for “peo­ple with a wide range of abil­i­ties who want to get fit and have fun while rais­ing money”.

Last year’s big­gest earner was a Viet­nam/Cam­bo­dia bike ride, whose 175 par­tic­i­pants raised £850,000.
