Our very own Customer Service team have taken on a challenge of epic proportions!
On 18 September, they will attempt to run, row and cycle the distance from the Parenta office to Paris – that’s 240 miles!
The team will be setting up gym equipment in the office and taking it in turns to tackle the journey.
The plan is to run to Dover, hop on the rowing machine over to Calais, where the bike will be waiting for them to cover the rest of the distance to Paris.
Team leader Luke Francis said, “One of us will be sweating on the machine, while the others cover the phones. We’ll keep swapping until we’ve done all 240 miles. I anticipate it taking about 30 hours”.
The Parenta to Paris team is made up of Luke, Emma, Tommy and Richelle and they will be giving the money they raise to the Parenta Trust, where it will be put towards a third pre-school in Africa.
Training has already begun, and the team are already balancing this with their everyday workload!
Check out their Just Giving page, where every donation will be gratefully received making the event that little bit less painful knowing that it is all going to a good cause!
