The XL Challenge is raising money to build a school in Tanzania. Participants will have to pay for their own accommodation and other expenses during the challenge. Places are limited so early booking is advised. Early booking will also give you more time to train for this great event. More information is available on www.XLChallenge.ie email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This will be an exciting team building challenge with the possibility of great rewards in personal achievement in supporting the building of this Tanzanian school.
