Team story

[p][b]COMMERCIAL VERSUS ARTHRITIS[/b][/p][p]Commercial is a business services group with an environmental, ethical, social conscience at its heart and an aim to make business a force for good.[/p][p][b]500 IN FIVE - THE CHALLENGE[/b] [/p][p]Commercial is no stranger to a fundraiser but this latest challenge takes things to an entirely different level and is a first for the brave participants. [/p][p]Throwing down the gauntlet to themselves, a team of intrepid Commercialites have announced that they will be cycling 500 miles in five days in a bid to raise £25,000 for Versus Arthritis. [/p][p][b]THE PLAN OF ATTACK[/b][/p][p]Starting at Commercial’s head office in Cheltenham on Saturday the 8th June, the cyclists will make their way to the company’s Leeds office, then the London office and finish back in Cheltenham on the 12th. [/p][p]The team plan to make visits on route to companies who have donated and supported the worthy cause. [/p][p]None of the team members have cycled such a distance before. And, as they knuckle down to an intense training programme, they have already received significant interest from customers and suppliers who would like to support them. But in order for them to reach their £25,000 target that won’t be enough. [/p][p][b]We need your help too. [/b][/p][p][b]WHY VERSUS ARTHRITIS[/b][/p][p]Versus Arthritis was selected as their chosen charity due to the team’s relationship with Aaron; a colleague and friend, who joined Commercial through the Commercial Foundation’s No Limits programme in 2016. [/p][p]A keen sports fanatic and once a promising young footballer, Aaron’s life has changed course many times as a result of Arthritis. Today, following numerous operations, he continues to battle both the mental and physical effects of the disease. He is truly an inspiration to the folks of Commercial.[/p]
