Reigning 30-Day Fitness Challenge champs, ADCO, are once again the team to beat this year. Will they make it a hat trick and top the fundraising leaderboard three years in a row?
This year’s 30-Day Fitness Challenge is shaping up to be bigger and fitter than ever, with ADCO stepping up as both an event sponsor and fierce competitor. So, what’s the secret to their success?
“Our strategy is to make this a national event,”
“We try to attract as many employees as possible from each state. Last year we managed to have 100 participants from ADCO nationally. This was a terrific result in itself. The more participants, the more we raise.”Jonathan Ford, ADCO’s Communication’s Manager
In 2021, ADCO raised a whopping $50,000 for homeless youth and they hope to take out the top spot in 2022. Will second place getters GPT have something to say about that?
“We wouldn’t like to put a target on our backs, but the Property Industry Foundation is a great organisation which we like to support with gusto. ADCO will be going as hard as we can and we will be hard to beat again this year.”Jonathan Ford, ADCO’s Communication’s Manager
The 30-Day Fitness Challenge provides a great opportunity for staff to venture out of the office and set a mutual fitness goal as a team.
“As a workplace with many staff members who enjoy being active, and a long tradition of teaming up together in events and competitions, it’s a challenge we enjoy stepping up to. The team loves supporting and encouraging one another, exercising together at lunchtimes, before or after work, achieving their fitness goals no matter how high or low they are.”Jonathan Ford, ADCO’s Communication’s Manager
If you’re considering getting involved in the 30-Day Challenge this May, ADCO has some words of encouragement:
“This is a fantastic event to get involved in and give back to a great cause. The beauty is that anyone can get involved – it’s not just for athletes. Walk, run or ride a few kilometres or hundreds of kilometres, it doesn’t matter. What matters is people just having a go and raising some money.”
“Seeing staff members take up exercising for the month and then continuing on is such a satisfying thing. Great for the body and mind and also every participant will feel good about themselves for having raised some money for the less fortunate.”Jonathan Ford, ADCO’s Communication’s Manager
