With our recent partnering with ALONE Ireland, a number of WeBringg’s employees decided to run (or rather scramble through) the 5.5km RunAMuck challenge on March 10th, 2018 in Coolcarrigan Estate, Co Kildare. Our aim is to raise €1,500 in aid of ALONE Ireland who truly are a wonderful organisation. ALONE provides Housing with Support, Support Coordination, Befriending and Campaigns for Change to hundreds of older people every week, who are homeless, socially isolated, living in deprivation or in crisis.
Nine employees in total ran from WeBringg with the first person getting to the finish line in 1 hour and 16 minutes coming in at place 852. We consider that to be pretty good as there was a total of over 3,000 people who completed the RunAMuck challenge for charities throughout Ireland. Two of our clients from Snap Printing also took part in the challenge with us, in order to help us raise funds ALONE Ireland.
The RunAMuck challenge had many different obstacle courses in which we had to run, jump and climb through muck, water, ice, haystacks. Many of our team got stuck in the different terrains, with many losing shoes and falling face first into the bogs. It was a mucky yet rewarding experience for all our staff who left smiling. Marty Moore, our sales and marketing executive said, “It was dirty and smelly, but I loved it!”
We would very much appreciate your kind donations which you can submit online here. These donations (no matter how small) will help to allow ALONE to continue to do the fantastic work they are currently doing. Thank you to all our fantastic employees who took part in the RunAMuck challenge and continue to raise funds to date.
