Table of Contents
After the success of S2S Group’s challenge last year, the Steps Challenge makes a return for 2023.
S2S Group’s Charity Steps challenge makes a return with 26 staff members on board to participate in the challenge. The aim of the challenge was to walk as many steps as you can over a week’s duration whether it be by; walking, running, hiking, skipping, dancing, cycling, or any other way to increase your step count. The 26 staff members then got split up into 6 different teams (see image below).
Overall, all teams covered 2,876,479 steps calculating to around 1,282 miles. Meaning they could have walked to places like France and Germany!
This year’s winners were team Wolf, who walked an overall 639,440 steps 👏🏼
To help encourage donations to our chosen Charity Paces, S2S Group organised and ran a:
- Speed ball pool tournament 🎱
- A raffle to be in the chance to win 2x Paces chocolate bouquets 🍫
Alongside this everyone got to enjoy some delicious hot dogs and burgers provided be Ben at Farinas Artisan Pizza. This was a great way to celebrate the end of the challenge.
