SUMMER 2020 GET ACTIVE CHALLENGE
Welcome to the Potter Raper Get Active Challenge 2020!
The 50th anniversary charity walk may have been postponed until next year but we thought we would launch our first ever company wide Get Active Challenge instead, a 6 week campaign to inspire all Potter Raper employees to get more active, enjoy all the many benefits it brings, help raise money for our charity and win some great prizes and rewards!
Let's Get Active
This is not about being the fittest or the fastest, it’s simply about moving more for 6 weeks to reap a long-list of wellbeing benefits including increased energy, better concentration and a happier mood.
To help motivate everyone, this challenge brings in an element of competition between individuals, between our departments and our offices, so the Quantity Surveyors can take on the Health and Safety team, Project Managers can tackle the Employer’s Agents, we can see whether the Colchester office are moving more than the Brighton office – and whichever team puts in the most will win a team activity (to be decided), the most active office will win the Potter Raper Get Active Challenge Cup and the most active individual will win vouchers to the value of £100 towards trainers, Fitbit/Garmin, home workout equipment etc
Keeping active is good for our mental-wellbeing and reduces stress and anxiety; we understand that especially due to the pressures of the pandemic and working from home, many of us have missed the interpersonal interaction of being in the office. Our aim with the Get Active challenge is to get things back to ‘normal’. How else to do it than with a bit of healthy competition for a good cause? Share your photos of you getting active on Instagram and tag us #PotterRapergetactive. The person with the most inspiring/exotic photo will win a bottle of champagne.
All you have to do is register and then log your activities, the system will do the rest and tell everyone how we are doing. Any kind of activity counts – run, walk, cycle, swim, online/offline classroom, weights, dog walks, Joe Wicks, treadmill, anything except being sedentary! Even walking along the beach with the family or to the pub counts. Remember you can Get Active anywhere in the world!
EARN A GREAT MEDAL AND PRIZES, HELP OUR CHARITY
There is a fantastic, specially designed Potter Raper medal that will be awarded to everyone who participates. Furthermore, there will be the chance to win fantastic prizes for the most active individual, team and office.
The entry fees are being paid for by Potter Raper, and £10 for each participant will go to charity, split equally between the four food banks local to each of our offices. We are also giving you the opportunity to top this up by adding your own donation if you would like to help meet our fundraising target of £2,000
