That can’t be said for many of our employees at Architecture & Access. Every day our team help create safe, functional and accessible environments that enable people to experience life equally with confidence and dignity
This desire to improve things for other people extends to life outside work. Over the past few months many members of our team were involved in great causes.
Tim Randall was one of 4,314 riders, fundraising $535 towards the $59,241 total raised for the Amy Gillett Foundation. The Amy Gillett Foundation works with all levels of government, road authorities, corporate, motoring, cycling and community safety organisations and the public to create a safer cyclist’s environment in Australia.
Tim is an Architect and cycling is his primary mode of transport to and from work each day and therefore he has a vested interest in the cause of the foundation.
A ‘Gran Fondo’ is an Italian cycling term, meaning ‘great endurance’. Traditionally a Gran Fondo is a timed event that has a scenic, challenging, mountainous course. At 130km in length with nearly 2km of elevation, Amy’s Gran Fondo certainly fits the brief, travelling from Lorne to Dean’s Marsh over Benwerrin Peak, skirting Birregurra, turning back through Forest, climbing over Mount Sabine, before racing down to Skene’s Creek and returning along the majestic Great Ocean Road.
22 Architecture & Access employees took part in STEPtember to raise money to support people living with cerebral palsy. Sub-teams were made, pavements were pounded, and dogs were happy to be going on more walks than usual. Over $2000 was raised and we calculate collectively around 3,000,000 steps were taken.
