Lewis Land Group to walk a total of 30 million steps and donate $50,000 for charity

  • Written by Business Daily Media

In an effort to combat lockdown blues for its NSW staff, and raise money and awareness for an important cause, Australia’s oldest private property developer, Lewis Land Group has joined STEPtember with a goal of 10,000 steps per day.


As part of the team challenge, five of Lewis Land Group’s NSW business units will participate; The Fiddler, The Camden Valley Inn, The Mercure Rouse Hill, Sovereign Hills and Head Office. 


If the five business units achieve the goal (an overall 30,000,000 steps for the entirety of the month), The Lewis Foundation has committed to donating $50,000 to STEPtember, and raise funds for people living with cerebral palsy. 


The Group has always placed an importance on continuing with CSR initiatives regardless of any COVID or lockdown situation, and is also recognising the importance of mental health and wellbeing during this prolonged NSW lockdown. 


“With our NSW teams approaching its eleventh week of lockdown, we’ve definitely seen a shift in motivation and employee engagement; so in an effort to help our teams feel like they are part of something bigger, we thought a team challenge combined with a charity would be well-received,” said Matthew McCarron, CEO of Lewis Land Group.


“As of the first of September we’ve had over 100 staff members register for the cause. We’re most looking forward to motivating their spirits while helping them get up and get active, and what better way to do it than combined with a very special cause?”


The Lewis Land Group also recently soft-launched its first mental health and wellbeing program for its staff, called Mind, Body, Soul. 


The program aims at improving the wellbeing of staff particularly during lockdown, with focuses on different initiatives such as online training courses, meditation and yoga resources, healthy hampers and gifts, virtual team bonding and more. STEPtember is one of the initiatives to help launch this new program. 


“Most of our NSW staff are working from home and some are even juggling homeschooling. We’re hoping that, whilst raising money for Australians living with cerebral palsy, STEPtember will help our staff get out and about - even with their families,” said McCarron.


“Our new Mind Body Soul program is a reflection of the Group being mindful of its staff and we are looking forward to continuing this program throughout lockdown and beyond.”
