Over £26,000 Raised So Far!
Cisco and Cisilion is celebrating breaking the £26,000 fundraising milestone for Crisis, the national charity for homeless people, thanks to the efforts of a 100 strong team from across the IT industry who completed the 25km Thames Bridge Trek.
Through a partnership with Cisco and Cisilion, Crisis will use the funds raised by players to help extend the support it offers to people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness. This partnership is already delivering important service transformation, helping many more people with complex needs take their first steps away from homelessness.
Hannah Taylor, Marketing Director at Cisilion said: “I am so proud of Team Cisilion, Cisco and all the other Bridge Trekkers in the IT Community for all their efforts in making this event such a success!”
‘Great fun, supporting a great cause with a great team’
“Hopefully one of the first of many events supporting Cisco’s global initiatives to end homelessness. Let’s take the Bridge Trek to a global scale and build a bridge to end homelessness”.
Sarah Farquhar, Director of Organisational Development at Crisis said: “I never thought I would enjoy walking 25km as much as I did. Thanks to the creativity and drive of our partners Cisco and Cisilion, and many other technology organisations who were instrumental in making this event a reality, the Thames Bridges Trek was both inspiring and successful. We have raised vital funds and awareness so more people now share our belief that homelessness can and must be ended. It was more than a walk, it was the beginning of a new stage in our journey.
