Quantum Marine raises over $8,000 for Multiple Sclerosis Foundation

Quantum Marine Engineering of Florida raised more than $8,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSF) in July in the endurance event called the 3 Peaks Challenge. MSF’s national headquarters are in Ft. Lauderdale.



A popular event in Great Britain, participants climb the highest mountains of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours. The total distance is about 27 miles (44 km) with a total ascent of 9,800 feet (3,000m).



The three peaks are Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales.



Total driving route distance between the peaks is 450 miles (725km), so the timing and logistics can make or break the challenge.



This photo was taken at the base of Ben Nevis in Scotland, the first mountain to be scaled. The Quantum team, from left to right, was: Michel Make (a student at Delft University of Technology, NL), project manager Justin Shell, project manager Leah Sosa, Quantum President John Allen, financial manager Davina Stauffer (front), production engineer Russell Villamil (behind), shipping co-ordinator Michelle Manea, Tracey Evans (a personal trainer from Just Fit Gym in Plantation), technical publications writer Wayne Collington, General Manager Pete Grenfell, Michael Stam (son of Ruud Stam), and Ruud Stam, finance administration for Quantum Controls in the Netherlands.



Allen and Grenfell were the drivers, the remaining 10 were climbers. Four team members – Villamil, Ruud Stam, Shell and Sosa – met the 24-hour goal.
