Runtech Group raise money for MIND throughout November

Share article

Throughout the month of November, Runtech embarked on a challenge to fundraise for Mind.

As the months get 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 statistics above, we decided to set a challenge of completing 433km collectively as a team throughout 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.

Challenge highlights

A few challenge highlights included:

Chris Liebrand, Runtech’s Managing Director, commented:

Looking after our mental health is so important and this challenge encouraged employees to focus on their wellbeing whilst staying active. Mind is an important charity that provides invaluable support and advice, so I’m pleased we have raised money to support their efforts.

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:
