As you will have seen from Flick’s blog post a couple of weeks ago, To InFINNity and beyond, a few of the elite ‘athletes’ at Ruder Finn will be taking part in the NSPCC Step Change 2011on 6th March, a race to the top of one of London’s most iconic buildings, the Gherkin.
‘Tower running’ turns the idea of a race literally on its head. Instead of running on a typical route, we will be climbing the 1037 stairs up the Gherkin in a race to the 38th floor. Pretty difficult I’m sure you will agree. So we need some motivation, something to get the blood pumping, the adrenaline running and basically to keep us moving.
For this, we need your help. The Step Change team has set up a collaborative playlist on Spotify and you can suggest the songs that we run to. It’s really simple and won’t take a minute:
- Click on the link here to access the Ruder Finn StepChange Spotify playlist
- Once you’ve opened the playlist in Spotify, just search for the song you want us to run to, add drag and drop into the playlist
- Only rules are that the songs are upbeat, and preferably related to steps, climbing, mountains, heights… *gulp* - oh and no swearing please, we’re a nice bunch
Alternatively, if you don’t have access to Spotify you can leave your suggestions in the comments box below and we will add the song to the playlist on your behalf.
Thanks to everybody for their support so far – we’ve just smashed the £500 barrier and are well on our way to reaching our target. But we’re not there yet, so please give generously via our fund-raising page.
