Runtech Group raise money for MIND throughtout November
Throughout the month of November, Runtech embarked on a challenge to fundraise for Mind.
As the months are getting colder, it is less appealing to exercise and go outdoors. Staying active is great for your mental and physical well-being, so we wanted to encourage our team by taking on a challenge.
Why we wanted to raise money for Mind
Mind is a mental health charity, that provides advice and support to anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
As a charity that is close to our team’s heart, we wanted to raise money to support Mind. After researching, we found out that local Mind charities support over 433,000 people per year.
The distance challenge
Incorporating the 433,000 statistic above, we decided to set a challenge of completing 433km collectively as a team throughtout November.
To make sure it was challenging for the team, the activity recorded for this challenge had to be separate from daily activity, which intensified the challenge even more.
A few challenge highlights included:
- As better habits started to kick in towards the end of the challenge, our team increased the weekly distance by nearly 30% compared to the start of the month.
- After not running for a few months, Matt decided to set a personal challenge of completing an equivalent of four marathons throughout the month!
- Wanting to build better habits by exercising more frequently, at the end of the challenge, Laura was doubling the amount of gym sessions.
- Employees were getting out for walks whenever they could throughout the day. Even walking to a further tube station, and walking home rather than taking the bus!
Chris Liebrand, Runtech’s Managing Director, commented:
We’re proud to announce that we completed our 433km distance challenge and raised £325.00 for Mind. We even went over our target by 10km! If you would like to donate to our JustGiving page, here is the link: https://www.justgiving.com/page/runtech-group.
