YAANA CORPORATE CHALLENGE 2018 – CHIANG MAI

Following the massive success of last year, raising 25 000 USD net to Operation Smile, the 2018 YAANA Corporate Challenge is now here.

What is YCC?

The second YAANA Corporate Challenge will take place in the Chiang Mai Province between 21st – 23rd of September 2018. The objective is to bring together progressive corporate business leaders to have fun and enjoy amazing scenery while they push themselves mentally and physically. In addition they will promote sustainability and raise funds for Operation Smile, Thailand which pays for operations for  children born with debilitating  deformities such as cleft lip.

The 2 day, 3 night event is organized by YAANA Ventures which features a 2 day bike tour program — which is not a race, but an adventure — is organized by Grasshopper Adventures.
