Written by Victoria Bacon

Throughout May 2023, SilverRailers around the world competed in this year’s annual fitness challenge. Across our global offices, we embarked on a month-long journey of health, vitality, and personal growth. But that's not all — we also delved into the world of vegetarian and vegan meals, all while making a positive impact by competing for our local charity of choice. This year, the US and Europe team took the win for the remarkable charity 'A Well-Fed World'.

The Challenge

It’s important that our annual challenge is open to all. So, our teams picked their preferred form of exercise — be it swimming, walking, boxing, or dancing. Throughout the month, we tracked our steps, celebrated milestones, and encouraged each other along the way. It was all about unleashing our inner champions!

Embracing Meat-Free May

We're not ones to shy away from a challenge, so we decided to spice things up with 'Meat-Free May'. Our team embraced the world of vegetarian and vegan meals, discovering new flavours and exciting culinary possibilities. Not only did we nourish our bodies with plant-based goodness, but we also helped to do our bit for the environment.

The Results Are In...

Our collective efforts during the challenge were truly impressive. Together, we logged a jaw-dropping 17,729,775 steps — a testament to our dedication to an active lifestyle. But it didn't stop there. We also completed an incredible 587 meat-free days, proving that you don't need meat to thrive and enjoy delicious meals.

Giving Back

At SilverRail, we believe in making a difference beyond our own lives. Throughout the challenge, we raised funds for the winning team's charity, 'A Well-Fed World'.

'A Well Fed World' is a remarkable non-profit with a powerful mission. Their work spans sustainable farming, hunger relief, promoting plant-based diets, and advocating for animal welfare. We're incredibly proud to have partnered with them and contributed to their important initiatives. By supporting their mission, we extended our impact beyond our workplace, creating positive change in the world.

Stepping Into a Healthier Tomorrow

As part of SilverRail's annual fitness challenges, we aim to create a sense of community, drive the importance of health and well-being, and have fun along the way. We celebrated the joy of movement, embraced vegetarian and vegan meals, and made a positive impact with a fantastic charity.
