Together with UK colleagues we would like to invite you to a fitness challenge that covers virtual travel from one end of the country to the other. In 2021 as one EMEA group we set up ourselves a new target to collectively and virtually travel through the participating branches - a total of over 4000 km (2500miles)! This year in Poland we want to cover distance of Polish main river – Vistula.

Participants of all athletic ability are encouraged to take part. You set your own distance, in your local area over the seven days, and you decide whether you cover it all in one go or spread it out over the week. You can run/ jog / walk/ swim / cycle (the only condition is that you will be able to count your distance). No distance is too big or too small – one mile a day, an ultra-marathon and everything in between, the choice is yours.  No times, no pressure, just challenge yourself.

Setting ourselves a new target to collectively and virtually travel along the Vistula river: from the river source in the mountains to the Baltic Sea - a total of over 1047 km (651miles)! Collective distance will be tracked using the app Strava – this is free, available worldwide and on Apple or Android phones. The event will start on Monday 20 June and finish on Friday 24 June.

Registration is a suggested donation of 20PLN.
It would be great if friends, family and colleagues could support you in  your efforts and contribute to charity as sponsorship. This will help fund Charity of the Year – EKOSTRAZ.

Who Benefits

Ekostraz, established in 2009 and based in Wroclaw, acts to protect all animals, domestic, wild and free-living.

The organisation provides help in the form of interventions in cases of suspected animal abuse, veterinary and legal aid, facilitates animal adoption and focuses on raising awareness and educating the public in the field of animal welfare.

Currently Ekostraz takes care of over 250 hedgehogs, as well as a racoon, several foxes, hens, pigeons, dogs and cats.

Credit Suisse's support will facilitate the modernization of Ekostraz premises, including building renovation and the provision of medical equipment.


Long Term Impact

Funds collected will help Ekostraz intervene and fight for justice, save lives and provide veterinary care, prepare for adoption (domestic animals), find homes or release to the wild, organize money and gift collections, events, and educate.

The aim is for all participants to fundraise for the Credit Suisse charity of the year in their offices/home offices. Also family and friends are more than welcome to support.
