25% was still a LOT!!
Elizabeth Boland, Bright Horizons CFO and Foundation Board member, shares her experience in the 4 Peaks Challenge, a fundraiser for the Foundation in Europe
Just before 7:30 a.m. on June 23, I found myself standing in a bustling parking lot at the trailhead for Ben Nevis in the highlands of Scotland, as 49 of my colleagues from Bright Horizons in Europe piled out of cars and vans to greet all of their friends, make last minute adjustments to their hiking kit, and pack a few last minute snacks for the trek. As The Proclaimers blasted “I’m Gonna Be (500 miles)” from a nearby car radio, everyone started to sing and bop around the parking lot, and we strapped on our packs and headed for the hill with this inspirational tune playing in our heads and giving that extra lift to our gait.
