17-Dec-12 Janathon!

In Blog, Personal on December 17, 2012 at 10:17 am

With just two weeks remaining of 2012 and the festive period fast approaching, I thought I would take time out today from my normal technology blog to talk a little about Janathon!

Janathon is an annual event that I became aware of through Twitter. For one month, you need to do some form of exercise you would not normally do and blog it about it daily! And before you ask, that includes the 1st of January!

It was last year’s event that I contributed to for the first time,  and, as you know, my blog has continued since (sorry about that).

Although I joined halfway through, it was hard work even if I was only jogging about a mile a day, but this year I decided to make it more of a challenge with the inspiration of my colleagues at work.

Our main charity that we support at SThree PLC is SOS Children’s Villages, who do some fantastic work for orphaned children (every day, 5,760 more children become orphans).

Our team within the IT department are going to do a group Janathon effort to raise money for SOS children and we hope to recruit a few non IT folk along the way (details to follow later this week).

It would be great if our team effort in January could hit our £1,000 target and we could get some assistance from our social media friends.
