Gibbons team steps up to the Virgin Pulse Global Challenge

As our customers know, we love nothing better than a challenge here at Gibbons Engineering Group. That’s why we jumped at the chance to take part in the Virgin Pulse Global Challenge, a worldwide health initiative that sees participants compete in mini leagues and against others around the globe.

With over 400,000 people from 185 countries taking part, the event aims to promote a healthy lifestyle, team bonding and engagement and encourages participants to set weight and fitness goals.

The 100-day challenge requires the seven-strong Gibbons team to wear a pedometer from when they wake to when they go to bed and upload their daily steps total via a mobile app.

Gibbons will be taking part in a mini league against seven other ABB authorised value providers – companies exclusively approved by ABB to supply its automation products and services.

On 15th December, after 100 days and millions of steps, the team with the greatest aggregate total is declared the winner!

The Gibbons team comprises a mix of gym enthusiasts, dog walkers, cyclists, footballers and busy parents, so we’re quietly confident of a good showing.

Good luck to everyone taking part and watch this space for updates!
