Biosite’s around the world challenge will see Team Biosite walk, run and cycle an incredible 25,000 miles – that’s an average of more than 830 miles a week – to raise money for our charity partner Ronald McDonald House Charities. The route, spanning 30 weeks, will see us virtually visit our partners across the ASSA ABLOY Group in Stockholm, New Haven (Connecticut) and Willoughby (New South Wales) before travelling back to our head office in Solihull (England). We’re aiming to raise £2,500 – that’s 1p for every 10 miles completed. Can we do it? Follow our journey and see!

Target 1 – Stockholm to Birmingham: 1,306.5 miles – ACHIEVED  

Target 2 – Birmingham to New Haven CT USA: 3,298 miles – ACHIEVED

Target 3 – New Haven CT USA to Willoughby Australia: 9,986 miles - ACHIEVED

Target 4 – Willoughby Australia to Birmingham UK 10,578
miles - ACHIEVED 


We've completed our journey and raised more than £5,000 - that's double our target! Well done Team Biosite and thank you to all our colleagues, customers, suppliers, friends and family who have supported us!
