Taskize was out on the running track this week, raising funds for Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity.
We took part in the 5km J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in the glorious sunshine on Thursday 6 July achieving a respectable average finish time of 33 minutes and 18 seconds.
Team captain and Head of Product, Kishan Bharwad, who recently completed the Paris marathon, lead our runners with an impressive time of 24 minutes and 4 seconds closely followed, just two seconds later, by Senior Software Engineer Pete Gould.
“It was a fantastic event to be a part of,” Kishan explains. “Not only does it raise a great deal of money for a very worthy charity but, as a remote-first company, events like these are great for team building and face-to-face time with clients. We’re already looking forward to next year!”
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge has been an annual event in London since 1986. It ran for five years in the city, took a year off in 1991, and returned in 1992 to a new race course next to the Thames in beautiful Battersea Park. It then ran every year through to 2019. Over the two days this year around 20,000 runners from 619 companies took part.
Centrepoint provides homeless young people with accommodation, support and life skills to help them grow beyond what has happened to them in the past and help them to realise their potential.
