As part of celebrations for its tenth year in business, Autotech Recruit is inviting employees, contractors and friends to take part in its Around the World in 80 Days fundraising event.
The automotive recruitment specialist is raising month for Age UK to provide winter care packages for the elderly.
From 19 October to 6 January, the firm is encouraging individuals to track their daily steps with the goal of reaching 50 million steps – that’s the equivalent of 24,844 miles.
An Autotec Recruit spokesperson said: “2020 has been a challenging year for all, but particularly many older people who may have been isolated and lonely for an extended period.
“Join our team and track your normal daily activity, exercise, or steps – collectively, we’ll emulate Phileas Fogg by travelling around the world in 80 days.
“Your contribution can be achieved via walking, running, biking, swimming, bouncing, rowing – any form of movement can be tracked and synced on a fitness band, mobile phone, or tracked manually and entered onto the app.
“To put the challenge in context, to achieve our aim, if 100 people join the challenge, each doing approximately 10,000 steps per day, we would smash the target and make it around the World in 80 days.”
