The Seamen’s Church Institute (SCI) Mountain Challenge is a biennial fundraising event, first held in 2013. Since its inception, BSM has participated three times, with 2019 being the fourth time.
In the upcoming Mountain Challenge on September 26-29, 2019 taking place on land and water, competitors will complete a course that includes hiking, paddling and obstacle elements through the beautiful Sunday River area of western Maine. Teams of three competitors will start and finish the race together, ascending approximately 3,000 feet each day.
In addition to the physical competition, SCI challenges each team to raise a minimum of 3,000 USD. The funds raised by each team count towards the overall team rankings and awards. Final standings are calculated based on course times as well as the money raised. All donations raised through this Challenge support SCI’s various programmes serving mariners globally.
The BSM Schulte Summiteers won two first places in the SCI Mountain Challenge in 2017, by raising 23,500 USD.
