The teams at Mapix Technologies, Routescene and Trackplot have raised over £800 participating in the charity event HomeRun 2020 organised by the homeless charity Shelter.
Members of the ‘Mad Trackers’ team walked and ran as much as possible throughout September. The team managed to cover a total of 428 miles, the equivalent of from the office headquaters in Edinburgh all the way past London to Brighton.
Company founder and CTO Gert Riemersma commented, “It was a welcome challenge and distraction from the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the constantly changing guidelines that everyone had to deal with and the limitations of not being able to meet up to run together due to Covid restrictions, it was a excellent way at building team spirit. This event was a great opportunity to become much fitter during September, I certainly feel better for all the miles I managed to cover. Everyone really got involved in the event and surpassed our targets of both mileage and money raised. Thanks to all those that supported us.”
