All for 1...072! 1Spatial raises money for Addenbrookes Virtual Challenge 2020

To celebrate the 72nd Birthday of the NHS, a team of 18 athletes across the 1Spatial UK and Ireland office are raising money for Addenbrookes and The Rosie Hospital by taking part in their Virtual Challenge 2020.

Initially, we challenged ourselves to run, cycle or walk 1072km but this target was easily reached in the first week and so we chose to increase to 2,144km. After hitting this target last week, we have decided to increase our target and change to miles and now challenging ourselves to  2072 miles during July. Employees from across all different departments are having great fun and enjoying some inter-company competition plus lots of fresh air.

With our global headquarters in Cambridge, many of our employees have benefitted from the great care and support Addenbrookes and The Rosie provide. We wanted to show our support for the NHS and staff who have done and continue to do a fantastic job at protecting us during these challenging times and jumped at the opportunity to put on our trainers and run, walk and cycle to raise money.

As of 26th July, we have achieved 2046 miles and this week have 26 miles to go! This has been achieved by the following

  • Run: 509.67
  • Walk: 127.97
  • Cycle: 1255.38
  • Virtual bike: 144.50
  • Hike: 8.72
  • Swim: .22

1Spatial has also donated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal for both our FME World Tour events and our virtual Staff Summer BBQ

Go team! We definitely deserve first pick of the Friday morning biscuits when we return to the office!
