16 brave employees from Siemens in Wollaton, Nottingham signed up for the challenge of their lives...
These self-proclaimed ‘I.T. office geeks’ decided to raise money for us – a charity close to their hearts – by taking part in the Men’s Health 10k Survival of the Fittest.
Survival of the Fittest is a colossal 10k urban assault course – an endurance course filled with action-packed obstacles. Siemens Dream Team weren’t doing it for fun, but to raise funds for Children with Cancer UK.
The team trained and held fundraising events over many months. They raised over £5,500 (including gift aid) – an outstanding amount. £2,000 of this was a Siemens company contribution.
Here's how they did it:
- collected sponsorship from work colleagues, friends and family
- organised a Gos Sporty day at work. Dream Team members were sponsored to rund around Siemens Nottingham muddy back fields! It was £5/lap and they did over 40 laps.
- Siemens donated £2,000 after the team hit their £3,000 target and successfully completed the race
