Mark Kingston, SVP international licensing, Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products, along with six other members of the international team and 20 other Viacom colleagues from across the wider business, are attempting to complete the challenging National 5 Peaks Challenge between 11-13th September. The team is raising much-needed funds for the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, which is celebrating its 20th year.

The UK National 5 Peaks Challenge is one of the toughest events that can be undertaken in the UK & Ireland, and involves climbing the five highest mountains in Wales, England, Scotland, Northern Ireland & The Republic of Ireland. The challenge covers a total of 64kms and involves ascending over 5,300 metres in less than 72 hours.

Speaking about the challenge, Mark commented: “Any contribution would be amazing, and would help raise essential funds for a great cause. Many thanks in advance any support that can be offered, and yes – I am a good +10 years older than the next oldest member of the team attempting this challenge!”
