In a joint effort between our UK and Malta based teams, more than 50 Genting employees have been on a mission to run, walk and cycle their way across the globe (virtually) in a bid to raise money for charity.
Having set an initial target of 2000km - the distance between the UK and Malta offices – the teams collectively covered more than 10,000km in February and ultimately reached Malaysia!
Using the Nike Run Club app, the challenge was a fundraiser for Dragonfly Cancer Trust - a UK charity supporting young cancer patients with no hope of a cure. To date, Genting employees have raised over £6,000.
Sanjeev Vadhera, Chair of Trustees at Dragonfly Cancer Trust, commented: “On behalf of the Board of Trustees at Dragonfly Cancer Trust, I would like to say a massive well done to each and every one of you who took part in this fantastic challenge. It is simply wonderful that your team of dedicated staff have come together during these difficult times and have collectively raised such an incredible amount of money.”
Helen Brittain, Genting UK’s Chief Information Officer said: “It has been a brilliant team effort, with everyone coming together to help smash our original target. We’re very proud to be supporting such a fantastic charity like Dragonfly Cancer Trust and the work they do to support young cancer patients.”
