PwC’s ‘5for5’ walk raises funds for charities
Staff and alumni of Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) held a walkathon and carnival recently. It was tagged ‘5for5,’ aimed at raising funds for five charities. As early as 6.30am, staff and alumni gathered at the take-off point. PwC Country Senior Partner, Uyi Akpata and several partners led the contingent on the 5km walk.
According to Uyi Akpata, “PwC decided to raise funds not just for one but five charities with the objective of impacting many more people in the community.”
The Five Charities include Cerebral Palsy Center, Surulere, Destiny Trust Center, Ibeju-Lekki, Down’s Syndrome Foundation, Health Emergency Initiative and Optimal Children’s Home, Magodo. The funds, which were raised by PwC staff, Partners and Alumni, will be shared amongst the five Charities.
According to PwC’s Diversity and Corporate Responsibility Partner, Obioma Ubah, “The walk was a collaborative effort which allowed us to network with our alumni, promote healthy living and give back to the community.”
The PwC contingent completed the walk after which they embarked on other fun activities, including dance aerobics, and other entertainment. Ubah commended the team spirit exhibited at the event.
