Overview

Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or a Sunday stroller, there are lots of fun ways to get active and fundraise. To make it even easier to get involved, we’ve put together a week schedule so together, as one WYG, we can synchronise our activities across our UK offices.

The table below shows some of the planned activities for our offices across the UK.

  • Choose how far you’ll go.
  • Download the app and join the WYG Active league to track your steps and start fundraising

Let us know how you get on by emailing: active@wyg.com so we can add your mileage to our totaliser.

As a group of colleagues from each office why not take part in a 5km run (or more) at either lunchtime (12.30) or after work (5pm)?

Simply join the WYG Active club and log your run on Strava.

Andrew Clarke, Director in Urban Design from our Manchester office has set himself an epic challenge of swimming a marathon over the course of Sport Relief week. That’s 26.2 miles or 42,195 metres or 1,676 lengths (25m pool) over 7 days. He will be swimming hitting the pool 3 times a day to achieve the distance. Such an amazing effort!
