Press Release: March 31, 2010
IT Support Partner JMC completed 487 miles for Sport Relief during its Do-A-Mile challenge week.
Employees could complete as many miles as they wished, with many clocking up theirs by running and cycling to and from work, as well as by using the onsite gym during lunchtimes.
Although over 40 members of the JMC team participated there were some individuals that deserve extra recognition.
Jonathan Broadley left his car at home all week and cycled to and from work. By the time he got home on Friday night Jonathan had managed to raise £60 having cycled 60 miles over the five days.
Having been in a committed training regime since the New Year, Steve Chalkley completed an 11 mile run into work. Completing the journey in just over two hours Steve also raised an additional £165 in sponsorship money.
Tess Mayors wore a pedometer all week tracking her movements around Riverside. Due to the nature of Tesss role within the company she clocked up an impressive 21 miles over the week.
Top performer of the week was Business Development Director Tim Maxwell who clocked up a remarkable 105 miles in just four days.
JMC is donating one pound for every mile completed which, when added to the money raised from a dress down day, takes the total raised too an impressive £572. Once with Sport Relief, the money will be sent to help turn around the lives of people in the UK and across the worlds poorest countries.
