Team story

[p][b]3000 Mile Challenge[/b][/p][p]As we’ve been unable to do any of the activities we had planned for 2020 we’ve thought outside the box to come up with a company-wide challenge that everyone can take part in to help support our two nominated charities, Leeds Children's Heart Surgery Fund and York Rescue Boat.[/p][p]From Monday 10th August to Sunday 6th September (4 weeks), Garbutt + Elliott as a team will cover a total distance of 3000 miles, equivalent to the 3000 nautical miles Yorkshire Rows covered across the Atlantic Ocean in 2016. [/p][p] [/p][p][b]How will we do it?[/b][/p][p]Our team and their families will cover as many miles as they can, in any way they like, the more creative the better (obviously no cars, motorbikes, trains etc). Here are some of the ways we are planning on covering the distance:[/p][p] [/p][p]Walking/Running/Cycling to interesting destinations[/p][p]Swimming[/p][p]Rock climbing[/p][p]Ice/Roller Skating[/p][p]Scooting (push style only)[/p][p]Horse riding[/p][p]Climbing stairs/walking round the house or garden[/p][p]BMXing[/p][p]Skateboarding[/p][p]Walking backwards (or sideways!!)[/p][p]Hula hooping[/p][p]Skipping[/p][p]Golf[/p][p]Kayaking[/p][p]Rowing[/p][p] [/p][p]And many other creative and fun ways our team and their family can think of![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Why are we doing it?[/b][/p][p]As a Business we are supporting York Rescue Boat and the Leeds Children’s heart Surgery Fund for the year.[/p][p]York Rescue Boat – The team is based in York, North Yorkshire with their work based around the Rivers Ouse and Foss. Uniquely they work to make the city safer by carrying out combined patrols, by boat and on foot, at high-risk times every weekend throughout the year as opposed to just responding to emergency calls. Their teams are on call 24 hours a day to provide assistance and specialist equipment to both the police and fire services. Their teams also regular visit schools, youth groups and universities to talk about water safety.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Leeds Children’s heart Surgery Fund – The team is based in Leeds, West Yorkshire providing expert care in identification, diagnosis and medical/surgical treatment of congenital heart disease, arrhythmias and acquired heart disease. They understand that caring for people with a congenital heart disease involves more than treating just the heart itself. It is so much more than that. They are committed to supporting the heart, mind, family and future.[/p]
