NEWBURY, England, Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --
Following a team vote, Ortho Consulting Group are pleased to share that the charity they will be supporting in 2019 is The Limbless Association.
"We are really keen to support charities linked to the orthopaedic industry. We know that so much more can be done to support the good work that this charity does, so we are committed to help make a positive difference where we can," said Matt Woods, Founder of Ortho Consulting Group.
One team member, Andrew Dubowski, Head of International Business, is kicking off their first fundraiser with a huge personal challenge for his 45th birthday. Andrew is pledging to travel 3,000m by conducting a full-body flat-to-the-floor burpee, followed by a 1 metre jump. Andrew will be taking on the challenge in a gym in Hampshire on Saturday 2 March for an estimated 7 hours!
Andrew admitted; "I'm not quite sure where the idea came from, but I don't think this has ever been done before. I've been training since November, jumping over 300m every evening over my kitchen tiles! I'm going to need all the support I can get, this is going to be the toughest thing I've ever done in my life!"
He has set up a fundraising page with a target of £3,000. If you'd like to support him, please feel free to donate here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/AndrewDubowski
