Day 4 #MyEpicWeek Challengers – Meet BDO

 

We have some amazing companies in Guernsey who have spurred on their workforce to take part in the FCG EPIC Challenges Week. Here we celebrate the sterling effort of BDO – thank you so much for your continued support and well done for what you have achieved so far!

 

 

 

 

The BDO team has supported Warren Mauger and Philip Smith in their last two EPIC Challenges and an impressive 30 members of the BDO team are taking part in My EPIC Week. They have set a target of covering a staggering 2,000 miles over the week, which is more than Warren and Philip are aiming to do!

 

What is your challenge and why have you chosen it?

Staff across the firm are fitting in their individual challenges around their normal working day and are geared up to hit their target by the end of the week. BDO have set an ambitious target for fundraising of £2,000 to match the target mileage.

To reach our target of 2,000 miles we will be participating in walks, runs, swims and cycle rides, with all ages and abilities taking part over the week.

What inspired BDO to take part in the FCG My EPIC Week?

MD Richard Searle says: ‘What inspired us? Warren and Phil’s crazy challenge and determination, of course! It’s all about the “why”, really – the causes benefitting from the week, being This is Epic and Guernsey Mind, both do really important work in their respective fields. Following the enthusiasm of the team joining the guys in the 48-hour treadmill run in 2015, providing monitors for the Guinness Book of Records and taking the graveyard shift on the team run, it was a no-brainer to invite people to support EPIC Week again this year. The team ethic and buzz from the guys and girls as they support each other in reaching our combined goals is contagious. People have given up their time to organise and drive this and it’s fantastic to see everyone getting behind it. Now all we need is cake to boost the energy stores…’

How is it going so far?

We are on track for our target and so far in total the team had achieved a massive 1,100 miles by Thursday morning!
