A new year workplace challenge set up to help motivate colleagues into getting active in 2019 has turned into a fantastic fundraiser that has already raised in excess of £4,000 for charity. The Nisa Miles Challenge was launched in January to encourage staff to be healthier and walk, run or jog their way through the first month of the year to hit a target of 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles.
Almost 90 colleagues entered the event and at the end of January well over 4,000 miles have been recorded. So great has been the enthusiasm for the challenge it has extended into a Quarter 1 challenge with more colleagues joining in and others setting themselves new targets. And to make it even more worthwhile, Nisa’s charity Making a Difference Locally, has pledged to match miles with money and donate £1 per mile to Alzheimer’s Society.
MADL will match fund the miles completed throughout February and March with a donation to Alzheimer’s Society at the end of March
