“Make the world a better place”
In 2012 I launched ‘The Steve Mills Foundation.’ The mission of the foundation is simply to do our small bit in ‘making the world a better place.’ We do this by donating to charities and other good causes and so each time we win new business, get a referral, complete a speaking or training event, we like to make a positive difference to others in the world.
Cancer Research UK
The foundation donates £100 to Cancer Research UK every time we win a new client from referral. You can help by referring people to us. We have raised a total of £5,300.00 for the charity.
Cancer is something that touches most people’s lives in some way. We see it as a privilege to help people climb the mountain called ‘overcoming cancer.’
The Marathon Des Sables – the 150 mile Marathon …
Jim Ewan, our trainer/copywriter, completed the Marathon des Sables. This extreme marathon takes place over six days and involves running 150 miles across the Sahara Desert carrying all your own food and clothing. That is roughly equivalent to running one Marathon each day for six straight days – but in 40-50 degree heat across sand dunes of the Sahara Desert. Not only that but he raised over £8,000 for charity whilst doing so.
The Three Peaks Challenge
I have also completed the ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ three times. Climbing the tallest mountains in England, Wales and Scotland – I raised over £1,000 on each occasion. This money has been donated to Cancer Research UK.
