-------------------------------------

Team VodaForce (a team of Salesforce and Vodafone employees) will be working as a team to cover the 195 miles between London and Paris between 21st and 25th September, with the hope of pushing ourselves and actually covering the distance between Vodafone's Newbury HQ and Salesforce's San Francisco HQ (a whopping 5300 miles!)

We will be running/walking/cycling/swimming these miles to raise as much money as possible for Astriid, a charity that helps individuals with long-term health conditions get back to work. 

"Employment provides routine, a sense of normality, challenges and rewards, and when approached correctly, can also facilitate a greater sense of wellbeing. Astriid helps bridge the gap between the Invisible Talent Pool (people who have long-term conditions but who wish to use their skills and experience in work), and the UK skills crisis. The platform matches talented candidates with prospective employers, providing accessible work opportunities for those who are seeking them. In this way, Astriid hopes to make the Invisible Talent Pool, Visible."

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for your donations to this phenomenal cause.
