McCann Group is a family-owned organisation, consisting of McCann Ltd a civil and electrical engineering company working across the UK on major infrastructure projects and Peter James Homes a property developer of unique high-quality designer homes across the East Midlands.
As a team, they wanted to accomplish something worthwhile together during the current Coronavirus outbreak that helped keep them unified and active, encouraged the communities they operate in to maintain positive fitness practices under potentially sedentary circumstances and to support our NHS Staff, Volunteers and patients impacted by Covid-19 across the country.
They have set themselves the challenge of ‘virtually’ covering the distance from the Head Office in Nottingham to Madrid, Spain and back home again. The distance is 2,324 miles and they will record individual activities such as running, walking, rowing and cycling within their daily exercise allowance (and within lockdown and social distancing guidelines), in order to take them to that magic number as a company.
All funds will be donated directly to NHS Charities Together in order to support the NHS above and beyond normal NHS funding. This additional financial support goes towards equipment, support mental health recovery, provide tablets for isolated patients to enable communication with loved ones and much more.
