The team at Miller Samuel Hill Brown have been putting their best feet forward in a bid to raise much needed funds for Simon Community Scotland, while getting fit in the process.
During January and February, employees signed up for the Steps Challenge and we have managed to rack up a staggering combined total of 3,991,774 steps - an average of 3,042 Kilometres!
Each participant vowed to take as many steps as possible across areas including Glasgow, Stirling and Balmaha during a four-week period. A special shout out to Linda Reilly who walked 430,055 steps, Aileen Thomson who chalked up 398,028 steps and Lyndsay Brown with 249,675 steps.
