In honor of MPC2018 Challenge Month, which happens to coincide with Blood Cancer Awareness Month, MPC and Bloodwise have created a challenge for all Peakers.
MPC’s roots lie somewhere at the top of a Munro (a Scottish mountain measuring more than 3,000 feet/914 meters). But we know that not everyone can or even would like to attempt to summit one. Instead, this month, we’re challenging you to accumulate the equivalent number of steps.
To get involved, choose one or more Munros from our handy downloadable guide (see below) and commit to walking the designated number of steps. It’s up to you if you’d like to make those steps vertical (as in up stairs or up a local mountain) or horizontal (on a treadmill or simply on the roads around your home). Support your efforts by making a direct donation via our JustGiving page. Involve your family and friends to sponsor you for each Munro you cross off the list!
Furthermore, because every successful summit of a Munro requires a flag to wave, we present our MPC2018 flag (see above), on sale now via the MPC Shop. A full 100% of profits from sales of the MPC2018 flag will be donated directly to Bloodwise.
It is also customary to celebrate having bagged a Munro (and to prepare for the journey back down) with a dram of whisky. While you’ll have to provide the whisky yourself, we at MPC and Bloodwise will certainly be toasting you and your efforts to beat blood cancer, one step at a time.
