What an outstanding performance! Last year we have been exercising for a good cause and have achieved 97% of our target goal. It was the first year of the Oxyma Fit Program in which 70 participants performed more than 66.000k of cycling, 14.000k of running, 110k of swimming and some kilometers of skating. Health is key, and the Oxyma Fit Program likes to see everyone 'top fit'! For Oxyma, doing sports together is not only to experience sports as team achievements and become fit and more socially engaged with colleagues. But we also do this, because we want to give the ability of playing together and achieving goals, to those for whom it does not come naturally. Who are they? The 1 million kids that could be reached through the programs organized by Right to Play. And their focus is to 'let children learn through play'!
And so for this year, a new outfit in the new Oxyma colors and the Rotterdam marathon have kicked off another year of 'moving and tracking' for Right to Play. Their goal for 2018 is to engage 2 million children with their programs. And our goal is to track even more activities through the Strava app this year.
More initiatives have come up, such as obstacle runs, mud races, the creation of sports teams... Also climbing stairs add some to the team effort. Good to know (and really a benefit) that there's a shower at Oxyma - at aFrogleap, we still need to see how we are going to handle this, for lack of this luxury in the office.
So, let's keep moving! Come and get your sports bottle. We're in this together!
