James Fisher Offshore launches team cycle challenge, raising money for Mental Health Aberdeen
On Friday 1st February 2019, JFO will begin their team cycle challenge of 11,344 miles - the distance between their global offices; JFO Houston to JFO HQ Oldmeldrum to JFO Malaysia in Johor! Over a 3 month period, 35 JFO employees will cycle and track their miles on 3 stationery exercise bikes based at its HQ in Oldmeldrum.
Organised by the JFO Health and Wellbeing committee, this exciting challenge aims to promote health and fitness within the workplace while also supporting positive mental health to all. After meeting with Mental Health Aberdeen, a local charity that provides counselling and information services to adults and young people, and learning of the work they do, it was clear that the committee would choose to support MHA and their campaign #timetotalk.
‘Mental ill-health can threaten the basic things many of us take for granted. Whether that’s our ability to manage our own lives, enjoy relationships with family and friends, or even to earn a living, mental illness can be an extremely destructive force in a person’s life, and stigmas that accompany the illness can make recovery even harder. Mental Health Aberdeen offer help and support to those suffering from mental ill-health and accompany individuals as they work towards taking back control of their lives.’ MHA Aberdeen
