Deloitte impact Day, fun & success with a heartbeat
On Saturday June 26th, 2010 the first ever Deloitte Impact Day was organized by d-side in King Baudouin stadium in Brussels.
On that fantastic day, all members of Deloitte Belgium were invited to celebrate with their family. They could enjoy a whole range of sports, music and entertainment. A lot of activities and fun on the programme but not without thinking about one of Deloitte’s key corporate responsibility projects: SOS Children’s Villages.
During the event, Deloitters and their family members could participate in the “Running for a Good Cause” competition. Each Business Unit could run for 5 hours. The aim was that each BU ran as many laps as possible. The ultimate goal: running 500,000 metres all together.
And they did much better! Encouraged by Kim Gevaerts and Ronny Mosuse, ambassadors of SOS Children’s Villages, 2.066 people participated and collected a magnificent 1.516.000 meters on the track at the end of the day! For each meter, Deloitte funded a certain amount of money to SOS Children’s Villages.
Next to the main running event, people could participate in a lot of other sports as football, volleyball, basket, tennis, archery, cycling,…
On the football court, they could compete against Jean-Marie Pfaff. Each time someone scored a goal, Jean-Marie signed the ball and the happy player took it home as souvenir. On the cycling track, 300 cyclists competed with Peter Van Peteghem. On their side, children had a lot of fun enjoying a whole range of activities and exciting games as archery, acro benjy, climbing wall,…
Famous Belgian artists, Rockstar, Coco Junior and Daan, closed the day with a memorable and heart pulsing concert.
In line with Deloitte’s Greening the Green Dot programme, Deloitters and their family enjoyed healthy organic food and beverages delivered by Biofactory. Transport was also organised as sustainable as possible: public transport, carpooling, busses travelling from Deloitte local offices were promoted as much as possible. Travelling together to join the event and later to go back home was also a very good way to get and stay into a real festive mood.
