On the road to Rio
In June, all staff and partners were asked to count their steps every day for 6 weeks. The mission was to see if together we could walk all the way to Rio in time for the Olympic Games opening ceremony on 5th August. It’s nearly 6,000 miles, so that’s a lot of steps. If we made it, the firm committed to donating £1,500 to Scottish Sports Futures.
Not only did we walk all the way to Rio, but we almost made it back again. Between us we walked almost 21.7 million steps, equating to roughly 10,835 miles. In recognition of this massive achievement, the firm has decided to double its donation to the sports charity.
Scottish Sports Futures uses inclusive sport and physical activity as a means of engagement, offering young people creative ways to learn about physical wellbeing, goal setting, teamwork and active citizenship. Their programmes are focussed at different stages of youngsters’ development and target communities that are often vulnerable or at-risk. www.scottishsportsfutures.org.uk
