Andy's Clocking up the Miles for Charity
LMB Group Managing Director Andrew Bean will embark on a gruelling twelve-month, charity challenge for Kirkwood Hospice and The Children’s Heart Surgery Charity, starting on the first of January 2019.
Andy came up with the crazy challenge of walking 1,000,000 steps a month, for 12 consecutive months after LMB Group committed to supporting three charities for 2019, they will also include Bradford based children’s charity One in a Million in its three chosen charities.
Andy will walk 32,876 steps a day, the equivalent of 19.3 miles per day which will equate to 7,058 miles over a twelve-month period. Andy had this to say about the challenge, “I’ve always been into fitness and setting myself challenging goals, but this will be a tough one to say the least. We’ve always supported charities where we can, but next year we decided to put some structure and focus behind our fundraising efforts. We chose Kirkwood Hospice and The Children’s Heart Surgery as two of our chosen charities after asking our team to nominate a charity and give us a reason why. I couldn’t believe that some of our team had recently had family members at the hospice and one of our Estimators had heart surgery at the hospital when he was younger, it seemed like two obvious choices really”
LMB Group are asking anyone who reads our news story, to dig deep and support Andy in this gruelling challenge.
