Brian McGregor and Andy Desai from our Singapore office have successfully completed the Sailor’s Great Wall of China challenge.
Taking in over 35 km of undulating and challenging terrain, Team North trekked from Jainkou to Mutianyu and through eight watchtowers at Crouching Tiger Hill before walking the wild wall at Coiling Dragon Hill to reach 24-Eye Tower, the highest point on the hike.
The team were fundraising for the Sailors’ Society Crisis Response Network which offers counselling for seafarers and a 24-hour, rapid response service providing frontline care to traumatised seafarers after piracy attacks, natural disasters and other crises at sea. This event will help the Sailors’ Society open new networks in the Philippines and the Americas. Thank you for your support and generous donations, which helped us raise over US$ 4,600 for this worthy cause.
