LandAid’s Steptober Challenge
LandAid’s second Steptober challenge drew to a close on 1st November as property professionals stepped up for one final dash to the top of the leaderboard.
The annual event saw more than 500 professionals from the real estate industry take part in a country-wide step challenge to help support LandAid’s mission to end youth homelessness.
After a month of shifting top spots, it was Alter Domus’ team, AD Coast Busters, who came out on top of the ‘Team With The Highest Step Count’ table, with their team member Hugo Alves taking pole position in the individual leaderboard, too. The Alter Domus team managed almost 4 million steps between them – the equivalent of walking from London to Tripoli.
The 147 teams taking part managed to rack up nearly 200 million steps altogether this year – beating last year’s impressive total – with enough steps to walk around the world four times.
This year’s Steptober featured a CEO Challenge, with 12 property top dogs stepping up to end youth homelessness and compete with each other. The 12 CEOs took a massive 5 million steps collectively, with competition at the top of the table running high throughout the month.
Steptober 2019 was bigger and better than ever. So far, the fundraising total stands at more than £70,000, with a record number of participants competing with each other to help LandAid in its mission.
Make sure to step up to the plate next year and take part in property’s biggest step challenge.
Palmer Capital were delighted to take part in Steptober with two teams signing up and achieving over 3 million steps between them, with one team coming 29th on the leader board we was impressed with the teams’ efforts!
