On Monday, members of the Advanstar Global Licensing Group Bobsleigh Race Experience Challenge took to a gentle slope in the U.K. for an official photo call to draw attention to this eye-opening event that will raise money for The Light Fund.

Jessica Blue, event director for Advanstar Communications (headline sponsor), joined Stephen Gould, consultant at Bear Conran, experienced ice skater Pingu and a group of other team members a week before they leave to take a trip down a far more terrifying-looking slope.

The challenge takes 46 of the European licensing industry's movers and shakers on an ultimate adrenaline overdose, with each raising a minimum of £200 ($309) in sponsorship for The Light Fund. The intrepid speedsters will be in Austria from March 2 to 4, and will each take two rides on the Olympic bobsleigh run in Lans. The Light Fund supports a number of U.K.-based charities, including The National Autistic Charity, The Institute for Cancer Research and The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
