With each and every task we handle, we always go the distance here at TwoScots. So this October, we wanted to take that sentiment quite literally by conquering 1,000K between 21 of us. Why? Because we really #giveascot about raising much needed awareness and money for causes that are close to our heart, particularly when it’s fighting the single biggest killer of Australians – heart disease. With an office full of dedicated, active, and very competitive individuals, there was no doubt in our minds that we’d be participating in this year’s MyMarathon. In fact, it was full speed ahead to the finishing line!
So what is MyMarathon exactly? While the name gives away a hint or two, this fundraiser was created with a twist. The challenge? To complete 42.2km from October 1 – 31, but the method, place and time of completion lie within YOUR hands (or rather, your legs.) Whether you walk, jog or run over the duration of 4 hours or 4 weeks, the idea is to challenge yourself within your own capabilities, while raising much needed awareness and funds to support this incredible cause. So, as word literally ran rampant through the office, each of us knew we’d scot to give it a go!
To go that extra mile and raise as much money as possible, we set a goal among our 5 teams to reach $5,000, plus set internal incentives. True to our style of always going the distance, we’ve proudly hit our target already, before the month draws a close. $5,406 has been raised by over half of our superstar team, who have either finished or surpassed 42.2km, with the rest not far behind. We want to give a special shout out to our top 3 teams; Team Leona, Team Brittany and Team Zoe1, who’ve raised $2,420, $990 and $898 respectively. Hi-fives all around!
