Over the course of the next few months 25 people, including me, will be undertaking personal challenges to raise £1000 each to support the ICAS Foundation. Together we are the "Foundation 25"!
Although we are encouraging family and friends to donate we have a secondary target that at least 10 of our sponsors are CAs from our personal networks. So collectively we hope to raise £25k and engage 250 CAs.
Having taken up boxing training in the last year it has become a bit of a passion but also the most challenging exercise I have ever done - 12 rounds of 3 mins and no time to clock watch! I also walk and spin so my personal challenge is to complete :
15 hours of boxing training
120 miles walking
15 hours of Spin training
between 1 September and 31 December 2023
I am a proud CA of 30 years plus. Gaining the qualification changed my life and allowed me to fulfill my ambition… hopefully more to come. But I know that getting that first rung in the ladder is harder for many. Needing to hold down a job to support others while qualifying through higher education…. Not having someone to turn to for advice gained from experience….The ICAS Foundation supports academically talented students from disadvantaged communities… your donation helps puts that ladder in place….and we build a stronger and more inclusive profession…
