We are delighted to announce that Logi-tek (UK) and Commtech Asia will be taking steps towards a better future throughout May, raising money for charity.
As May is national walking month our teams will record every step they take, and we will donate money on their behalf. Yes, you did read that right, every single step! Whether it is walking to work, around a data centre carrying out their duties, or playing football with the kids on the weekend, it all counts.
Raising money for the great causes is of course at the forefront of this campaign. However, choosing to do this in May is no coincidence. We recognise the positive impact increasing the number of daily steps a person makes can have on their body and mindset. So, to get our team walking more is important to us and this is especially significant considering these unprecedented times.
These are just some of the reasons why you should try to work in more walking to your daily routine:
It is good for your heart; a brisk walk for 30 minutes every day is said to reduce your risk of a stroke by 27%. If this was not enough, it also reduces bad levels of cholesterol and increases the levels of good cholesterol too!
It can reduce the risk of; Alzheimer’s disease by 40%, breast cancer by 20%, coronary heart disease by 20%, depression by 30%, colon cancer by 40% and type 2 diabetes by 40%.
It makes you happy; a walk can be just as beneficial as taking an antidepressant and can be a great helping hand if you are suffering from depression, anxiety or feeling stressed. It can also boost self-esteem and reduce symptoms of social withdrawal.
Our teams across Europe and Asia-Pacific are ready and set to go.
