Mind, the mental health charity, were chosen as the Software Solved’s supported charity for 2021 as we recognised that 2020 has been an extremely difficult year for a lot of people, not only physically but mentally as well. Therefore we are kicking off the new year by getting involved with the Move for Mind Event this January to help raise money for those who need it (and maybe as a side affect drop a couple of those “mince pie lbs”)!
We’ve asked employees who want to take part, to pick a “30 Day Move Challenge” in alignment with the Move for Mind campaign, we’ll also be raising funds to inspire us to achieve our goals and raise money for a fantastic charity.
The Software Solved Team is:
Charlotte – 30,000 steps on the stair climber (44.5 Eiffel Towers in Steps!) in 30 Days
Zoe – Run 30 Miles in 30 Days (5.5 time the height (above sea level) of Everest!)
Rob – A Weight and Cardio workout a day for 30 Days (I quote “to shed the self titled “Santa” physique so carefully crafted in December”)
Kristian – Cycle 300 miles in 30 days (that’s 4.5 times the English Channel!)
Lindsay – Run 30 Miles in 30 Days (5.5 time the height (above sea level) of Everest!)
Ry – Burn 80,000 Calories in 30 Days (That’s about 2600 a day!)
JB – Cycle 130km in 30 Days (That’s 19 times the length of The Las Vegas Strip!)
Jake – 30 Days of Yoga (The Zen Master)
Tom – Run 100 Miles in 30 Days (That’s 1,500 times the height of Big Ben)
Rose – Cycle 250 Miles in 30 Days (That’s about 45 times as tall as a Mauna Loa!)
