A group of 25 employees from Lufthansa Technik Shannon have raised €11,000 funds for the Bumbleance charity by participating in the Hell and Back challenge. Bumbleance is the world’s first interactive, state-of-the-art, children’s national ambulance service for critically ill and seriously injured children.
Padraig Minogue introduced his co-workers at Lufthansa Technik to the idea. They engaged with the project and their support and team participation led to a substantial amount of money, €11,000, being raised for the Bumbleance charity.
Staff began training for Hell and Back, Ireland’s toughest mental and physical endurance challenge, in April along with various other fundraising events. The Hell and Back challenge is one the most popular obstacle courses in the country.
It’s like an adventure playground for adults, where participants must complete a 10-15km cross-country trail over rivers and lakes, climbing hills and mountains and crawling through bogs and swamps. To survive, you must conquer all the elements thrown at you, including Ireland’s unreliable weather, the gruelling natural environment and the torturous man-made obstacles.
On the day, the Lufthansa Technik staff enjoyed a great event, working well together to get everyone across the finish line in one piece through determination and teamwork spirit while also helping a few others on the way.
After taking on such a challenging event, the staff are delighted to have raised such a large amount of money for a charity close to their hearts, which will provide important care for children into the future.
