100k in 30 Days Raises 1.2 Million Euro for Breast Cancer Ireland

In June 2020, Overhaul team members clocked up a total of 7,259 km (or 4,510 miles) — the equivalent distance from Ireland to Texas — by walking, running, and wheeling over the course of the month.

In aid of the foundation, Breast Cancer Ireland, Overhaulers joined in from all over the world, including the UK, Ireland, Ukraine, and the United States. The idea behind the 100k in 30 Days campaign is simple. Over the thirty days in June, everyone taking part pledges to run, walk, or wheel just over 3k a day – or 100k in total.

Niall Carroll, from Blackrock, Co. Louth, launched the event as a local community fundraiser in 2014 to help raise money for breast cancer research in honor of his wife. While it had previously primarily involved only locals, this year there were over 14,500 individuals taking part from 34 countries around the world.

As the pandemic changed the way we live and work, 100k in 30 Days was an excellent way to raise money for a great cause while continuing to exercise and feel connected to others taking part in the same challenge.

Overhaul’s Chief Financial Officer & Chief of Staff, David Broe, had the idea to involve the rest of the company and one-by-one team members committed.

“I’ve been taking part in the 100k in 30 Days for the last few years. It was very much a Blackrock community event, and my wife and I always enjoyed the challenge. I know Niall and his wife, the couple that is behind this great initiative. Niall works in RDC offices at DkIT, a neighbor of Overhaul’s European headquarters. It was important for Overhaul to support this local event and to integrate with the local community. The idea was shared amongst our team, and the uptake has been fantastic. Wellness is a key culture within Overhaul, so it was good to see this in action and a shared challenge for the team.” -Dave Broe, Chief Financial Officer & Chief of Staff at Overhaul

Overhaul 100k in 30 Days Ryder Cup Challenge

There were internal competitions such as the Overhaul Ryder cup to help motivate the group. Overhaul’s team culture is rooted in a daily commitment to its core values. Participating in this event encapsulated multiple values, such as wellness, trust, encouragement, and integrity. Some participants were new to running while others were more experienced, yet the goals were personal, and each achievement was special. Increased team spirit and boosted fitness levels were a by-product of spending a month of such an unusual year doing something that supported a tremendously worthwhile cause.
