CPI EUROMIX COLLEAGUES READY FOR ANOTHER OUTSTANDING ‘FEET’ AS THEY PREPARE FOR STEP-TEMBER 2022
Colleagues at CPI EuroMix are preparing once again to get in their stride for the Step-tember charity fundraiser.
For each individual mile walked by employees during the month-long initiative, CPI will donate 50p to a chosen charity. It’s the fifth year the company has taken part in the challenge, with 2021’s event raising £7,000 for deserving local causes.
Stuart Russell, Commercial Manager at CPI said: “Step-tember is such a fantastic initiative. It not only helps fund some wonderful local charities; it engenders a sense of team spirit amongst colleagues because it’s a challenge that most of us can accept. Furthermore, walking is such a healthy pursuit; it’s good for mind and body. Therefore, I hope to see as many colleagues as possible stepping out for this year’s event.”
The Step-tember challenge will run from Thursday 1st, to Friday 30th September.Steps completed by colleagues will be recorded using personal fitness trackers or pedometers and uploaded to individual log sheets at the end of each day. In terms of health benefits, research shows that regular walking not only increases muscle strength and flexibility, fitness and energy levels, it improves mental health. Walking can also reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease and stroke, type-two diabetes and some cancers.
Stuart continued: My trainers are at the ready and I’m looking forward to spending Step-tember putting my best foot forward for some very worthy causes.”
