Virgin Pulse Global Challenge – week ten update

Seven members of the Gibbons Engineering Group team are taking part in the 100-day Virgin Pulse Global Challenge. This event requires participants to wear a pedometer throughout every day until Friday 15th December in order to accumulate the maximum number of steps for their team.

The ‘Funky Gibbons’ team is up against seven fellow ABB authorised value providers, and the healthy competition is encouraging us all to become more active.

We’re more than two thirds of the way through the challenge, and with just 30 days remaining, the end is in sight. However, the deteriorating weather means some of us are wavering and averages are dropping. This calls for one final push to see us through the last month!

The last two weeks has seen us clock up 350 miles between us and the team has now passed the 5,000,000-step mark. At an average of over 714,000 steps each, that’s some achievement in 70 days. While the top three in the leader board look to be out of sight, there’s still a chance we can reel in fourth-placed Central Striders over the home stretch.

As an authorised value provider, Gibbons is exclusively approved to supply, install and service ABB drives while offering training and technical expertise. Find out more by calling 01621 868 138 or email
