The smoothie bike challenge
On 13 and 14 May 2019 we hosted a Smoothie Bike Challenge across both the London and Cambridge offices in aid of Mental Health Awareness Week, the focus being promoting a healthy body image. Urban Smoothie Bikes came and set up two stationary bikes in each office, each capable of blending healthy and delicious smoothies. Each team contributed its pedal power, making a smoothie in the process and continuing cycling for fitness – a great way to improve cardiovascular health!
There was also a healthy dose of competition amongst the teams, with the Growth team coming up top in London with 17.9 km and IT HR Marketing & Accounts racking up 13.8 km in Cambridge.
Clearly, there was no uphill battle as firm-wide we managed to cycle an impressive 129km.
In addition to the generous donations from individuals, the CSR Committee contributed £2 for each km completed, bringing the total to £308 donated to our three CSR2020 mental health charities.
