At the start of 2021 Miramar chose SPEAR London to be our charity partner. They are an organisation which supports those struggling with homelessness around South West London, where our UK office is based in Richmond.
We wanted to find ways to make raising money for SPEAR fun and a little competitive, so the physical challenges we set our staff to not only helped them stay active (particularly during the lockdown periods) but also created opportunities to increase the donation from Miramar to SPEAR.
We held several events, which ranged from monthly mileage exercise targets to team competitions, and even our very own triathlon! Our whole Miramar team from across the globe got involved, including a marathon in New York, mountain biking in Singapore, runs around the lakes in Zurich, and group bike rides through Richmond Park.
We are proud to have donated £7,500 to SPEAR, 100% of which is down to the effort and determination of our Miramar team and we look forward to trying to top that in 2022, where we will once again don our trainers and gym kit to push through the cold weather and pain barrier in aid of a wonderful cause.
Tim Fallon, CEO from SPEAR met with us towards the end of 2021 to speak about the work that SPEAR do. You can see some of the content here
