At TBC.London we’re committed to being part of a healthier future for everyone. At the start of lockdown, we created two clubs on Strava – running and cycling – to bring our community together and help them stay active. 71 runners and riders joined us to turn kilometres into kudos and boost their health and happiness with exercise endorphins.
We recognised an opportunity to boost the wellbeing of some of the UK’s most vulnerable people at the same time. We pledged to donate £0.10 for every kilometre run and cycled to LandAid’s COVID-19 Youth Homeless Appeal and successfully raised £1,057 much needed funds to shelter and feed young people during the crisis.
As well as teaming up to raise funds for LandAid, we instilled a little healthy competition among our club members by setting challenges and giving away some coveted spot prizes including vouchers for healthy food deliveries and sportwear brands Rapha and Nike.
Our fastest athlete was Newton Perkins’ Ali Porter, who ran 5k in under 18 minutes. The runners and riders who really went the distance were BNP Paribas’ William Hudson, Edward Charles & Partners’ Jamie Shuttle and CBRE’s Lucy Dowling, Anna Tweed and Alex Millward. Savills’ Hunter Booth generously donated the value of his prize to the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in Putney.
We pounded the streets, we kept the pounds off and we generated more than a thousand pounds for those who needed it the most.
