Anti-capitalists! Your chance to cause businesspeople pain and help the oppressed!

Right, that may have got your attention!

Some MCFly readers are probably slightly to the right of Genghis Khan. Others probably rub ideological shoulders with Noam Chomsky.  Most will, Mr Gauss would say, are in the middle.

If you are the type who like to see business folks suffer, why not emotionally-blackmail some of them into completing gruelling runs and swims and so on.  They’ll then take the money you blackmail them with and give it to some decent charities. Everyone’s a winner, yes? See below!

 

Hi,

The Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathalon is just 9 days away!

Thank you so much to everyone who has already sponsored us, your support is really appreciated and will definitely spur us all on during the torture!!

If you don’t already know, some of the M4C team (with a little help from their friends) are taking on the UK’s toughest one day event on the 13th July and we need your support!

On Saturday 13th July Rachel and Ann will be swimming 0.8 miles across Loch Tay, Alastair and his friend Ed walking/running approximately 16 miles over 7 munros (including the UK’s 10th highest mountain!), Rachel and her friend Adam kayaking 7 miles and finally Ann and her friend Elizabeth cycling 34 miles around Loch Tay.

Training has recently been stepped up a gear, and last weekend saw Ann, Alastair, Rachel and her friend Sofia took the 6-hour trip up to Scotland to prepare themselves for the big day.

They have all written blogs following their practice weekend, so if you want to keep updated with the teams progress (and enjoy some light entertainment on their behalf) take a look here.

The purpose of this challenge is to raise as much money as possible for two amazing charities:

Mercy Crops – an international development charity working in over 41 countries worldwide helping people to turn the crises of natural disaster, poverty and conflict into opportunities for progress.

Mary’s Meals – an international movement that sets up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.

Any donations however big or small will be greatly appreciated and will hopefully make all the sore feet, legs and arms worthwhile!

If you would like to sponsor the team, please donate here by selecting ‘SPONSOR OUR TEAM’.

If you would like any more information about the event, you can find it on our quadrathalon page.

Thank you for your support (we need it!),

The M4C team.
