One such service Activity4Charity goes one step further by giving participants the option to link their daily steps to raising money for charity. The benefit being to widen the appeal of the programme and enable companies community projects to be linked with health and wellbeing.In the summer of 2012, 550 participants from 25 companies completed the Activity4Charity challenge and the results were pretty astounding:
- 63% reported it had improved team relationships and/or the office atmosphere
- 93% reported the challenge had benefited their personal health and wellbeing
- Before the challenge just 34% met the UK government activity guideline, this increased to 82% at the end of the challenge
- 30% lost weight
- 95% intended to maintain higher levels of activity.
