BSP Life’s 50 million steps for WOWS Kids on track

BSP Life’s Step with a Purpose is currently tracking at 38.5 million steps, an average of over 1.1 million steps per day over 33 days. Team BSP Life took on a 50,000,000 Step Challenge over 60 days for WOW Kids Foundation and at the halfway point is over 10,000,000 steps ahead of target.

BSP Life subsidiaries, Oceania Hospitals and Future Farms Ltd (Rooster Chicken) have joined this initiative.

BSP Life Managing Director Michael Nacola said, “we are pleased to have our full BSP Life family, including Oceania Hospitals and Rooster, involved in this campaign. Collectively we can do more, more steps, more awareness, and more fundraising for WOWS. We set an ambitious target of 50million steps and to be tracking above target is testament to our Team’s collective endeavour to support a worthy cause, specifically children with cancer”.

“Teams have been involved in Wellness walks, Zumba and other workouts to meet their targets. We’ve also raised awareness on childhood cancer through advocacy programs and social media platforms. Staff are raising funds for the WOWS Kids Foundation, which will be matched by BSP Life. It is heart-warming to see the level of support for this important initiative,” he added.

A final Wellness Walk to wrap up the 50,000,000 Step Challenge is being organised for later this month. Follow BSP Life on social media for updates.
