An invitation for you and your work pals to challenge yourself this Summer

Are you and your work mates brave enough to fall 10,000ft or walk over fire?

After months of working remotely, Zoom meetings and missed Christmas parties, we all need to enjoy some social interaction to reignite that team spirit. That is why Cornish charity, Merlin MS Centre, have launched their 4 Element Challenge and are encouraging Cornish businesses to enter a team.

The 4Element Challenge provides four separate events based around the elements of life; Earth, Wind, Water and Fire and is perfect for anyone looking to test both their mental and physical strength and to encourage a bit of healthy competition among colleagues of course!

During September, participants can enjoy a breath-taking three-day walking trek of one of Cornwall’s most iconic coastlines in the Cornish Coastal Challenge, taking place from the 16-18 September or 12-14 May 2023.

Get a bird’s eye view of the Cornish coastline by jumping 10,000 feet in a Tandem Skydive at Perranporth Airfield- various dates available.

On Sunday September 18th why not take part in the Carbis Bay Swim Festival, an iconic open water swim challenge and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. Adult and junior events are available.

The final challenge will certainly warm you up, a chance to walk on hot coals! A Fire Walk will take place at the Merlin Centre on Saturday October 29th with a celebration of thanks for all those who have taken part in any of the experiences.

Event organiser Ellie May said, “The past few years have been a challenge in themselves but now we are finding that people, with a newfound resilience, are looking for something to prove to themselves their strength, be that mentally or physically. Something personal to say, “I can do this! The 4Element challenge provides a variety of experiences that people can take part in and gain a real sense of achievement.”

Merlin MS Centre provides therapy and support to adults and young people living with neurological conditions in Cornwall. Neurological conditions can affect both the mental and physical wellbeing of the individual in unpredictable ways. The goal in the services offered by the charity is to provide people with the tools necessary to adapt to these daily challenges. Sponsorship raised from the 4Element Challenge will help continue making a difference to the people who need it most while providing participants with their own sense of achievement.
