PwC organises walk to raise fund for charity
The organisation has a network of firms in 158 countries with more than 236,000 people committed to delivering quality in assurance, advisory and tax services.
PwC Country Senior Partner, Uyi Akpata who led the five kilometres (km) walk said “5to5” is to create awareness and raise funds for five charities selected for the year.
“The organisation has decided to raise funds not just for one but five charities with the objective of impacting more people in the community,” he said.
He explained that the funds that were raised by PwC staff, partners and alumni, would be shared amongst the five charities.
The five charities, Akpata noted were Cerebral Palsy centre, Surulere Destiny Trust centre, Ibeju Lekki Down’s Syndrome Foundation, Health Emergency Initiative and Optimal Children’s Home, Magodo.
According to PwC’s Diversity and Corporate Responsibility Partner, Obioma Ubah, the walk was a collaborative effort, which allowed the organisation to network with the alumni, promote healthy living and give back to the community.
Ubah commended the team spirit exhibited at the event in spite of the rains.
The PwC contingents completed the Walk after which they embarked on other fun activities including dance aerobics, and other entertainment.
