Concentration is the secret of strength -Ralph Waldo Emerson
We are really proud of the adventures and challenges we have helped our Chums achieve and the like minded people we’ve connected since Challenge Chum was born in 2017 but as you may have already heard, we’re turning our focus slightly for the year ahead.
Now we’ve grown out of our baby nappies and are a fully fledged toddler, we want to make 2019 our most impactful year yet and we’re looking to connect more adventurers and challenge goer’s than ever before.
To achieve this, we’re shifting focus to our home shores and moving forwards Challenge Chum will be solely dedicated to connecting individuals living the UK, to take on challenges based in and around the British Isles.
We’ve loved having an international mix to our challenges so far, but to become the full adventure resource we believe CC can be, we want to develop a significant community of Chums in close proximity to each other to make it easy for everyone to meet up before they embark on their challenges together. We also want to build a comprehensive set of challenges in a smaller geographical spread to keep everyone busy and inspired.
Our dream is that CC becomes a place where everyone who visits us, leaves inspired with challenge ideas and like minded connections and have the confidence to make those dreams and ideas become a reality. We want to turn those fleeting browses on the old mega-web into a real life adventure you can tell the grandkids one day.
To do this we’ve realised the importance of building key Chum communities in specific regions and comprehensive challenge lists for these areas, this way when you come looking we’ve got the goods!
Our long term vision is to make CC a truly world-wide resource and build a global community. But to make sure we’ve got enough ‘Adventure-Food’ on hand to make us a valuable resource we need to build region by region so we’ll be focussing on our UK roots for the time being.
