Feb 2 (newsin.asia) – Conquer Colombo, a signature initiative by the Rotaract Club of Achievers Lanka Business School will be happening on the 9th of February 2020 at the sports ministry car park, Racecourse at 9.30 am. Conquer Colombo is the largest scavenger hunt in Colombo with the active participation of over 800.
This is introduced to promote teamwork and creativity among the contestants, regardless of age or gender. Participating teams are presented with a set of clues that should be solved in order to get to their destination to complete a challenge which in turn would award them points for doing so. Each challenge provides a unique experience, be it rowing across the Beira, Chopping up kotthu to the beat or even trying to ride a bicycle without pedalling!
Proceeds from Conquer Colombo will be utilized for the club’s biggest community service project “Project Life” through which we provide clean water to communities affected by Chronic Kidney Disease through rainwater harvesting systems and reverse osmosis systems. Over 1,100 chronic kidney disease patients are hospitalized per month in Sri Lanka and 300 deaths recorded per year. The death rate, however, is actually higher than this, because many of the victims die at home. We as a Club dedicated towards community service identified this issue and is now aiming towards lowering these numbers.

Conquer Colombo was recognized as the “Most Outstanding Rotaract Project” by Rotary International District 3220 in the year 2015-16.
