30 Million Steps

Thank you to Kate Downey and the staff at Actelion for their kind donation. Between them they have walked 30,000,000 (Yes 30 million!!) steps to raise funds for their favourite charities.

"I am delighted to advise that we have now successfully completed our staff challenge of walking 30,000,000 steps, and would like to make a donation of £1000 to The Somerville Foundation on behalf of Actelion employees, along with a number of other patient organisations that support patients and carers in rare disease areas."

On 25 May 2016, 1,602 Actelion colleagues around the globe (that is over 65% of the whole work force) started their virtual journey around the world. Each team of seven aimed to take at least 10,000 steps a day for 100 days, improving their health whilst having an enormous amount of fun along the way. #gcc Global Corporate Challenge

Thank you Actelion. Your donation is much appreciated.
