Join Novus on an End-to-End walk

27 June 2020

Novus Leeds is inviting all Novus and CIOB members globally to join them on a Virtual Walking Challenge, travelling the distance of the length of Britain from Land’s End to John o’Groats.

It is encouraging members to get their boots on and head out for a walk wherever they are, for as far as they can, as many times as possible throughout July. All the miles walked will be added to a grand total and plotted against the End to End route, which totals 1,215 miles.

Along the way there will be picture challenges, scavenger hunts and a chance to catch up with other members virtually.

 Getting outside and exercising both support good mental health – something Jake Morrish, Leeds Novus chair, is passionate about promoting.  Explaining the rationale behind the event, he said: “During these unusual times it has been difficult to find opportunities to connect with others. With this innovative event we aim to bring new connections together to work towards a combined goal.”

The challenge will also raise money for the CIOB Benevolent Fund, supporting CIOB members, staff and their dependent families.
