Walk All Over Cancer with Team Allwag

This month, (June 2017), Team Allwag will be taking part in the Walk All Over Cancer challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK!

 

In the UK alone, someone is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes, and a cancer patient loses their battle every four minutes. Charities such as Cancer Research UK aim to beat cancer once and for all and save hundreds upon thousands of people’s lives each year...

Previously, Team Allwag organised a fundraiser in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that’s dedicated to improving the lives of young people with cancer, which you can read more about it by clicking here.

Let's Do This!

Each participant in Cancer Research’s #WalkAllOverCancer challenge must walk 10,000 steps a day – which is a lot harder than you think! The average person walks around 5,000 – 7,000 steps every day, and that’s not including weekends where steps can be drastically decreased!

With 20 members of Team Allwag (aka the Waggies Walkers) getting involved, that’s a whopping 200,000K steps a day!

Here’s everything Team Allwag will be doing to ensure we meet our goal:

  • We’ll provide you with a daily step update on this blog post
  • We’re using I-Gotu Q-Bands to accurately track our activities
  • We’re all going out for a half an hour walk each day – even if it’s pouring down with rain (that’s where branded umbrellas come in handy)
  • In the office, a member of Team Allwag rings the doorbell every hour and we get up and start running until the doorbell sounds again
  • Each day we meet our target, Allwag Promotions will donate £20!!!

Wednesday 7th June

258,480 steps!

We honestly didn't think that we were going to reach our step target today due to being rushed off our feet (in the metaphorical sense, we were actually sitting down dealing with new orders, customer inquiries and so on...). This just goes to prove what teamwork and dedication can do! Well done Team Allwag!
