Haney Builders Supplies succeeded in rallying the community once again for the third annual Haney Builders Fitness Challenge. This inspiring event ran from April 24th to June 4, 2023, and drew in a remarkable 108 participants, all powered by a collective ambition to cover the distance of the Earth’s equator in a span of just 45 days.
This enthusiastic group not only took on the challenge but surpassed expectations, managing to clock a staggering total of over 50 million steps, equivalent to 35,440 kilometers – an impressive feat by any measure.
The event consisted of more than just an ambitious walking challenge. Teams of ten duked it out in thrilling weekly face-offs, vying not only for the top spot but also for the bragging rights that came with it. This year, NOT FAST, JUST FURIOUS stole the limelight, clinching first place, closely trailed by Walkaholics and Fraser Mills Brewery securing second and third positions respectively.
However, the excitement of the competition was just one aspect of this event. Collaboratively, the community raised a fantastic sum of $7,000 for the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation, highlighting the altruistic spirit behind this fitness challenge.
A resounding round of thanks goes out to Haney Builders for sparking this tradition and fostering a sense of community through fitness. We also extend our gratitude to sponsors DMCL Chartered Professional Accountants, Lili Blackwell Personal Real Estate Corporation, Impact Fasteners, and EMCO Corporation for their invaluable support.
Moreover, we owe a big thank you to the participants and backers. The donation from this event will fund critical equipment and cater to high-priority healthcare needs at Ridge Meadows Hospital and Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Health Services.
Indeed, in stepping up together, we are fostering a healthier and stronger community. Thank you for being part of that positive change!
