#WalkTheWorld – Fundraising for Cancer Research UK in 2017
Creativity and imaginative thinking have always been at the centre of what we do here at Teamspirit.
So when we heard the Cascaid Charity – a new initiative from the asset manager industry – were aiming to raise £1million for Cancer Research UK in 2017, we thought we better get our heads together to see how we could help.
We decided the best way forward was to ‘#WalkTheWorld’ – bringing the entire company together and tracking steps via an internal app whilst walking the equivalent number of steps between the five financial centres of the world – London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo. A calendar of events over the year will help us collectively achieve a distance of 21,000 miles – and in the process raise a shedload of money to support the battle against cancer.
The first of these was last week’s pub crawl exploring some of the best watering holes that Farringdon and Holborn have to offer – including the Cittie of Yorke, The Crown and my personal favourite, the beautifully restored Princess Louise. A great night and another step towards our target.
Upcoming events include the London 10 Mile in Richmond Park and the North Downs Way Half Marathon. Before then on Thursday 6th April we will be completing a sponsored walk (or run) from our respective homes into the Farringdon offices – some are even joining forces at key locations and making the journey together. Teamspirit in action.
There are not many people that have not been directly affected by cancer. Everyone at Teamspirit is fully committed to helping Cancer Research UK continue their great work in beating the disease.
