From September to December 2020, we held an online contest, and for each participation donated CHF 20 to ELA.
On 9 October 2020, we also joined in the “Put on your sneakers at work” initiative. Part of the “Put on your sneakers and fight the disease” campaign launched at schools to raise awareness about leukodystrophy and disability, this action involves counting the steps taken by employees of an organisation.
Our goal was to exceed one million steps in a single day.
Our 200 bank employees, equipped with a pedometer, took part in clocking as many steps as possible. Together, we surpassed our target and logged 1,278,305 steps! This sports performance was achieved by combining the steps taken by staff at our headquarters in Geneva and our branches in Zurich, Basel, Fribourg, Lausanne, Yverdon and Geneva.
Following the “Put on your sneakers at work” day and our online contest, we were proud to be able to present a check for CHF 20,000 to ELA.
