In October, Orega will be in Manchester’s tech hub, MediaCityUK attending their Interact event. As with all our Business Centres, we like to immerse ourselves into the local community and this event will be the perfect platform to carry on our fundraising effort and build awareness for 1moreChild.
We are raising money for Ugandan based children’s charity 1moreChild. This small organisation is dedicated to providing education, shelter, health supplies, care and support to some of the poorest children in the world. We decided to support this charity as it stands out from the rest – 1moreChild ensures 100% of every donation goes directly to the children’s needs.
Orega’s co-founder, Zach Douglas, has already completed a 350-mile cycling challenge from Geneva to Milan raising £10,000 for 1moreChild and now we are all set for our next Fundraising effort at our newest Business Centre location, MediaCityUK. (click here to watch Zach in action)
The idea is that passers by will ride as far as they can in 90 seconds on a stationary bike desk competing against each other, while as a collective trying to catch Zach’s 350-mile achievement.
There are two parts to the #CatchZach challenge; Firstly there is a competition to see who can cycle the furthest in 90 seconds. There will be prizes for the male and female who achieve the greatest distance in 90 seconds. The second part is about working together to reach the 350-mile goal that Zach achieved in his fundraising effort and setting the bar for the next #CatchZach challenge.
-Natural Beverages co. are our official drinks sponsor for the event and delicious juice will be handed out during the event.
-Gymworld have kindly donated 2 stationary bikes with adjustable desktops, for the event. We have dubbed them the “Deskercycles”.
If you are in Manchester in October, come along to MediaCityUK and saddle up for the glory of becoming Orega’s Fastest Deskercycler. Each contributor to the #CatchZach Challenge will be rewarded for their efforts.
