Team Motive walks 500 miles for ARCHIE
30 SEPTEMBER 2014
A North-east firm has stepped up its support for a local charity by walking 500 miles across Scotland.
Employees from Motive Offshore, headquartered in Boyndie, near Banff, have continued their fundraising efforts for chosen charity, The ARCHIE Foundation by participating in its annual virtual challenge.
The challenge, which began on 1 September, takes participants on a virtual journey around a variety of locations from 10 well-known Scottish films, including Disney’s Brave, Chariots of Fire and Harry Potter. The 500-mile journey travels from St Andrews, moving on to Edinburgh, then Doune Castle, Glencoe, Fort William, Inverness, Pennan, Cruden Bay, Dundee and lastly Stonehaven.
Motive Offshore, which launched its own charity group, Team Motive at the start of the year, has two teams of four taking part and one motivated employee is also taking on the challenge individually. Throughout the event the group will wear a pedometer to chart their miles and track progress round the map.
The ARCHIE Foundation, which is the official charity of the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital (RACH), has a total of 150 teams registered in the virtual challenge, which last year successfully managed to raise over £15,000.
Motive Offshore have been fantastic supporters of The ARCHIE Foundation by taking part in our annual events and also organising many of their own. It is fantastic to have them take part in our events as they always show such enthusiasm and inject a lot of fun into everything that they do. We are so appreciative of everything that Motive Offshore have done to help sick children in the North of Scotland.
- Claire Bush, Fundraising Manager, The ARCHIE Foundation
Team Motive has already raised nearly £9000 for its two chosen charities this year, The ARCHIE Foundation and Cancer Research UK, through various challenges including the Knock Hill Race, Inverness Race for Life and Tough Mudder.
