LMAX Launches Rugby Challenge

LMAX Exchange has announced the launch of the LMAX Exchange Everest Rugby Challenge, hosted in partnership with Wooden Spoon, the UK’s children’s rugby charity. ?
Taking place in April 2019, the event will mark the first-ever attempt to set two Guinness World Records for the highest altitude rugby matches on Mount Everest. The event will aim to raise a minimum of £200,000 for Wooden Spoon, a charity committed to transforming the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children and young people across the UK and Ireland through the power of rugby.
The two records are for the highest altitude game of full contact rugby played and the highest altitude game of mixed touch rugby played.?
