BHSF staff walk to Buenos Aires and back for charity

BHSF employees have walked the equivalent distance to Buenos Aires and back without leaving the country.

Teams from the employee health benefits provider walked a total of 14,600 miles as part of the Global Corporate Challenge to help cut child obesity.

Equipped with pedometers, three teams of 21 BHSF employees took part in the 16-week challenge. One team finished 600th out of 14,000 teams worldwide with an average daily step count of 17,676.

For every entrant an organisation enrolls in the challenge, a youngster is recruited to the Global Children’s Challenge in an effort to cut child obesity.

Peter Maskell, chief executive at BHSF, said: “It was great fun and a rewarding corporate challenge that included team building and getting fit.”
