On Thursday 19 November, our Luxembourg office participated in a challenge to raise money to support a charity close to our hearts. Wear you trainers and beat disease at work challenge, for the European Association against Leukodystrophies (ELA). ELA is an association for parents of sick children, working to minimise fatality since 1992 and joining forces to defeat orphan genetic diseases by supporting families on a daily basis, raising public awareness and boosting and funding medical research.
The aim of the challenge was simple – for every step taken by a Luxembourg employee during that day, IQ-EQ Luxembourg would donate 1 cent to the ELA. With this 1 step = 1 cent motto, our Luxembourg team targeted to reach out 1 million steps before 8pm.
Thanks to their incredible commitment and team spirit, over 200 participants joined forces and managed to reach the million steps 4 hours before the deadline! In total the Luxembourg team has collected 1,852,369 steps!
IQ-EQ Luxembourg will therefore proudly donate €18,523.69 to ELA Luxembourg which is absolutely amazing! Well done everyone!
