What is the aim of the CtWC?
To raise money for children of the world who really need it.
To reinforce and display our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) credentials as a network and to raise our profile.
How do I/we do that?
Simple; choose an activity (any activity) and get yourself sponsored by friends, family, contacts, your work… Complete the activity, collect the sponsorship and pay it in to the chosen charities.
By entering yourself or your team, sharing your goal/story/photos, you promote yourself and your firm to the network and wider. MI HQ will be highlighting a ‘Connector of the Week’ and allocating prizes.

Your activities are limited only by your imagination. If you can track it by distance, rounds, matches or hours, we will take care of the rest. Bonus mileage awarded for creativity.
Some Ideas to get you started:
It’s not just for the sporty or competitive ones among us – even the creative members can translate their achievements into ‘Miles’ - run, jog, walk, cycle, climb, ski, sail, row, swim, unicycle, pogo, windsurf, skydive, fly, drive your dream car (or motorbike and sidecar), knit, sew, bake… and anything else you can think of….
