The “Virtual Fitness Charity Challenge” was to complete the distance of 10,054 km between May 10th – June 30th, recreating the London-Paris-Tokyo route . The individual distance, either by cycling, running, walking or swimming, was measured by each participant.
A team of 44 from three countries completed a total of 735 activities and logged 567 hours over 59 days. The longest distance achieved by a single person from Tokyo team totaled 320 km.
Participants also donated approx. ¥1,500 (£10), or the cost of the fare spent while travelling work-home route.
Cushman & Wakefield recognizes the ways our people showed up to donate, volunteer and reach out to those who needed it most during this extremely challenging time. Most of our firm’s charitable giving occurs in the local markets and is paid by Cushman & Wakefield’s for-profit entities. Each of our three regions - Americas, EMEA and APAC - operates independent charitable initiatives, leading their own regional programs.
The Tokyo team, among other initiatives, participated in Run For the Cure walk & run charity event to support eradication of breast cancer in Japan.
