SSY Charity Challenge 2020 Raises Over £30,000Posted on 11 Sep 2020
With Covid-19 affecting so many people, we wanted to do something a bit different this year for our annual charity challenge.
Participants were asked to clock up as many km as possible over a week and this could be in any way they wanted. Individuals took part from our offices across the world including London, Mumbai, Singapore, Florida, Stamford, New York, Houston, Vancouver, Varna, Sydney, Shanghai, Geneva, Oslo and Bergen.
Challengers logged over 400 activities across the week which included walks, runs, cycles, tennis, golf, workouts, rowing and swimming which totalled a massive 6789km.
Given the current climate, we felt that supporting local food banks would be a great way to reach individuals who have been affected by the pandemic.
