A few weeks ago the Atwood Tate team took part in a walking challenge for charity! We attempted to walk 10,000 steps, or more, a day in order to raise money for Beanstalk.
Beanstalk is a national charity that gives one-to-one literacy support for children in primary schools. The money raised helps to send volunteers out to schools to spend between 30 minutes to two hours with a child, listening to them read and helping them to grow their confidence and develop their literacy skills.
Both the Atwood Tate London and Oxford office took part in this sponsored walking challenge aiming to walk over 10,000 steps a day in aid of Beanstalk.
Results of the Walking Challenge
Unfortunately not many of us succeeded, but we did all manage to take more steps than the average person:
- On average a person walks between 3000 and 4000 steps a day
- The Atwood Tate team, on average, walked 7788 steps a day!
Out of 12 participant’s only two consultants, Christina and David, managed to walk more than 10,000 steps a day, with Christina winning our overall competition to see who could do the most during the week.
Some of us even carried the Walking Challenge on over the weekend and Karine trumped us all by walking over 50,000 steps in two days!
It was great fun! We all enjoyed ourselves and felt much fitter by the end of the week! But most importantly we raised £171 to give to Beanstalk!
Why not take part in a charity challenge yourself? For Beanstalk or for another charity of your choice.
