Going the Extra Mile – from City to Surf

AMCAP kicked off their GEM “Go the extra mile” Health and Wellbeing program last Sunday with an energetic team participating in WA’s biggest community sporting event the Chevron City to Surf.

The City to Surf is Activ Foundation’s major fundraising event and a state-wide demonstration of personal achievement and community support.

Kevin Yap (GM Mining & Industrial), and his wife Anita and young child Xavier, joined Laszlo Harsanyi (Manager Digital Platforms & Product Marketing) and his partner Holly Byrne, along with Phil Pledger (Product Manager) and Sai Alla (IT Analyst ) to take on the 4km leg of the event.

“In order for AMCAP employees to perform at their best, we recognise the importance of work life balance and encourage a healthy and less stressful lifestyle, said Jason Mance, HR Manager.

As part of the program AMCAP subsidises entry fees into sporting events, provides healthy food choices at their onsite cafeteria and offers mental health support and counselling services to staff.

“We are really proud of our staff and their families for taking part in this iconic sporting event and also for their fundraising efforts that will help the Activ Foundation provide necessary support to people living with disability to live the life they choose”, said Jason.
