On Saturday 20th August, our MD and founder, Dr Mark McKinney will climb the highest mountain in Ireland, Carrauntoohil, along with his team at ATG.

Standing at 1,039m, Carrauntoohil in Kilarney is truly a gruelling climb. The team have been busy training for the trek since March.

Another training session completed

Their journey to fitness has included walks and climbs in:

  • Carranmore
  • The Glens of Antrim
  • Mount Errigal
  • Mountains of Mourne
  • The Sperrin’s
  • Slieve Donard
  • Causeway Coast
Team Training

Led by Richard Baker, a qualified BMC mountain leader, this extraordinary physical and mental challenge was planned not only to help staff shape up, but also to challenge them together as a team.  

ATG Group MD, Dr Mark McKinney explains,  

“I truly believe that Teamwork makes the dream work!  As we build our business, we must also support ATG Group staff to build their health and resilience. This challenge enables us all to set personal goals and, with the support of our colleagues, achieve and exceed our goals. I am so looking forward to the journey with the amazing team at ATG Group.”

Home time!

Funds raised will go towards specific projects at Ashes To Gold – a mental health support services charity, also founded by Dr Mark McKinney.
