Bernhard’s Charitable ‘Race Across the World’

Staff at Bernhard and Company are taking on the ‘Race across the World’ challenge in March, April, and May.

Rugby, England: Bernhard and Company has launched a new company-wide challenge to raise funds for Crohn’s and Colitis UK, by taking on the ‘Race across the World’, in March, April, and May.

The Race across the World challenge encourages Bernhard team members to cover the furthest distance possible over the next three months, ending May 31, 2024.

Anyone in the company can take part, and in pursuit of covering the most kilometres, staff can choose to either walk, run, or cycle. There are no limits on the distance that can be travelled, so Bernhard team members will be able to rack up kilometres right up until the end of May, in the hope of raising as much money as possible.

“We’re really proud to be launching another charity fund-raising challenge. As a team, we’re committed to supporting great causes, and by launching this challenge, everyone in the business will come together to do their very best to raise crucial funds,” said Steven Nixon, Managing Director for Bernhard and Company, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“Living with Crohn’s disease can be tough, as anxieties caused by the disease can have negative effects on mental health. So, we’re excited to work as hard as we can during these few months to keep moving and help to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by those affected,” added Nixon.

Crohn’s and Colitis UK provides support and information for the 300,000 UK citizens that are diagnosed with the disease, which affects gut health and leads to inflammatory bowel disorder. The charity aims to provide support and up-to-date information on the diseases for anyone who needs it, as well as breaking the taboo on these unpleasant disorders.

After taking on the Three Peaks Challenge in 2018, Bernhard and Company launched its virtual challenge in 2020: Bernhard5500, which raised over £1,000 for Parkinson’s UK.

Bernhard recognised that a virtual challenge would allow them to unite employees located around the world. This time, utilising a variety of fitness disciplines – walking, running, and cycling – allows Bernhard and Company to build on previous charity success, and enables its staff to contribute to the cause in whichever way they wish to.

The Race across the World is a team effort for all at Bernhard and Company, as a global business – and distance updates can be tracked throughout the challenge, by visiting: https://www.challengehound.com/challenge/e92cce40-d26d-11ee-929d-51f49388a738
