Throughout the month of May, Capita Resourcing’s Consultancy tower took on the challenge of completing a total of 536 miles of exercise across the team; the equivalent distance between their four offices in Belfast, Manchester, Reading and London. The team of fundraisers walked, ran and cycled to reach their goal quicker than anticipated, choosing to double their target to 1072 miles. At last count, the team had covered an impressive 1,294 miles!
A quote from Nico McCord, a member of the fundraising team and one of Max’s closest friends: “It’s always great to raise money for such an incredible cause. Max’s was a great friend of mine growing up and his loss was a tragedy which touched everyone he met. With more fundraising and research hopefully, future tragedies can be prevented for young men in the future. The consultancy tower voted almost unanimously to fundraise for Mindstep and doubled the original target of Reading to Belfast (536 miles!) People ran, cycled and even horse rode.”
The team have raised an impressive £1,500 for the Mindstep Foundation, which will contribute to funding a PhD in suicide research at the University of Glasgow, as well as mental health workshops and training courses. A huge thank you to Nico and the team at Capita Resourcing’s Consultancy Tower for choosing Mindstep as their designated charity for this epic challenge.
