This year we’re fundraising again for Cure Leukaemia, a charity very close to our hearts at Caboodle! We’re hoping to better our fundraising efforts from last year when we raised just over £6,700 as a team! As part of that, we’re challenging ourselves to get around the world in 80 days...
What is the 80 Days Around the World Challenge?
The challenge is similar to our Route 66 challenge from last year. Beginning on April 1st, the entire Caboodle team will track their weekly miles, working in teams to see how far we can travel around the world over 80 days. We’ll then total up everyone’s miles at the end of the week to see where we’ve got to! We’ll start from our office in Crewe, travelling first to London, then to Paris and so on.
We’ll also have some fundraising events across the challenge! We’ll have a fundraising buffet every other week throughout the challenge with cuisine local to where we’ve reached in the world that week. So, for example, if we reach Germany, we’ll have German cuisine etc.
Our challenge is to beat last year’s total miles covered! Last year we covered 14,751 miles on our Route 66 challenge!
We’re also challenging ourselves fitness-wise. As we’ll be in teams, there’s also a competitive edge!
Team Fundraising Challenges
We’re also doing team fundraising challenges every other week, The Apprentice style, where each team will be given a budget to go out and raise as much money as they can! We’ll all be putting our entrepreneurial skills into practice while raising money for Cure Leukaemia in the process!
…and a few other fundraisers to look out for! ?
We’ve got a few other fundraisers planned involving puzzles, Easter eggs, a military boot camp and rowing, so keep your eyes peeled!
