DFC kicked off an active summer for good causes

Duty First Consulting (DFC) walked, ran and jogged into the summer season by logging nearly 2,000 total miles for charity.

Now in its third year, this summer challenge sees which go-getting DFC staffers can earn the most miles running or walking using the Charity Miles smartphone application. The Charity Miles app tracks each mile logged by participating DFC staffers, and makes a donation to charity of their choice based on the distance.

The DFC team reached 1,989 miles – exceeding its original goal of 1,000 – during the challenge, which ran from May 6 through June 21 and was led by DFC’s Choosing Healthy and Mindful Practices (CHAMPS) program.

Steph Finegan, a consultant at DFC, and one of the top participants this year with 136 personal miles, said, “I enjoy being active outside of work and this challenge only encouraged me to do more! It felt great knowing that every mile I walked or ran helped me give more back to a charity of my choice.”

Congrats to everyone who went the distance!
