Team news - fundraising to make a difference

Mark kicks off fundraising season at the Go MAD Thinking office

It's fundraising season in the Go MAD Thinking office at the moment, with members of the team taking on various challenges to help raise money for different charities and make a difference.

 

In March, Mark Perkins completed a 5K Swimathon for Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie, raising over £600 in the process - double his initial target!

 

This was Mark's first Swimathon. His Reason Why for taking on the Swimathon was to challenge himself and to raise money for two charities that have done amazing work to support people close to him affected by cancer

 

 

Mark used the power of Involving Others a lot during his training. He enlisted the support of some 'swimming buddies', people who helped him share his story on social media to hit his fundraising target and close friends who helped him with his thinking when training got tough. One of Mark's close friends even offered to consume his share of alcohol while he abstained from drinking during his training!

 

 

Mark's planning and involving others paid off and he completed his Swimathon in an impressive time of 2 hours 9 minutes. He exceeded his fundraising target by more than 50% and has been inspired to go bigger next year...taking on the Triple 5K Swimathon - three 5K Swimathons over three days!

 

There are four more team members taking on challenges this year to raise money for charity. We'll keep you posted on their progress!
