We had a fantastic end to the year here at strukta as we pedalled and power walked in aid of Cancer Research UK.
We challenged our team to hit 392 miles (a trip between our 7 Trade Stores) over a 27-day period to raise money for a cause that is close to many people’s hearts. Statistics show that almost 3,500 Cancer cases in the UK each year could be prevented by physical activity, so we decided to get active this holiday season.
Thanks to an incredible effort from our team (and customers) we managed to clock up 928 miles!
Our office exercise bike travelled our 7 Trade Stores on our trusty strukta van, and between us we managed 555 miles – just a few miles shy of a road trip from Edinburgh to Bruges. A big congratulations to our team at struktaSALISBURY who cycled 133 miles in 10 hours – which averages at an impressive 13.3 mph. For those favouring a saunter over a cycle, steps were tallied and those wintery walks clocked up another 373 miles.
We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who sponsored us, and are delighted to say that we raised £631.06 for Cancer Research this winter.
As part of our challenge, we also ran an internal competition to see who could move the most miles in a day – and complete the most press-ups in 1 minute.
Well done to Jo, who ran 9.1 miles, and Giles who managed 77 press-ups in 60 seconds. In the spirit of the fitness theme, (and as we all try and be a little healthier in January) they both won a strukta green fit bit.
