New Year – Same Ol’ competitive team!

New Year – Same Ol’ competitive team!

20 February 2023 by Justin Rush

In January, our team took on the ultimate challenge: “Most KMs a Day.” We were determined to prove that we had what it takes to conquer this challenge and push ourselves to our limits.

For the entire month, our team members were encouraged to do more physical activity than ever before. We took our daily routines to the next level, whether it meant walking an extra mile, cycling further than usual, or hitting the gym every other day.

The competition was fierce. Each team member wanted to do more than the next person. Some went the extra mile by signing up to a Marathon…The competition was supported by Cancer health checks, nutrition talk, yoga and ‘Walk & Talk’ sessions. This allowed us to take a moment to prioritise our physical and mental health.

As we look back on our “Most KMs a Day” challenge, we can’t help but feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. We have proven to ourselves and each other that we can achieve anything we set our minds to. A big thank you to Emma Coulter for organising this fun month and who knows, maybe we’ll take on an even bigger challenge next year – Mount Everest anyone?
