The 50 million Steps Challenge - from Manchester to Shanghai...and back again
6th September 2018

To celebrate its 60th anniversary Broadway Malyan has set staff a challenge; to collectively walk 50m steps and raise money for charity in the process.

The challenge is based on the “step distance” between the firm’s Manchester office and Shanghai office, taking in all 13 of the practice’s studios from West to East and back again.

Fundraising and events will take place over two weeks in September, with every staff member encouraged to participate. This will vary from simply tracking individual’s normal, daily steps, to organised events on a studio by studio basis. This includes architectural tours, sports days, dancing competitions and team events.

There will be a global charity day on the last day of the challenge, with focused activity in every studio to encourage one last push to reach the target.

Every studio has nominated a charity to raise money for directly so that the money benefits a local cause. These are:

• Birmingham - Birmingham Settlement

• Lisbon - Ajuda de Berço

• London - St Mungo's

• Madrid - Centro de Acogida Temporal para Inmigrantes 'San Blas', Cruz Roja

• Manchester - Manchester Central Foodbank

• Mumbai - Vidya, Education for the Underprivileged and Green Sole

• Reading - Guide Dogs for the Blind

• Singapore - Red Cross Lombok Earthquake Response

• Shanghai - Heart to Heart Shanghai

• Warsaw - Szlachetna Paczka

• Weybridge - White Lodge Centre
