Posted on November 15, 2020 in

The teams at Routescene, Mapix technologies and Trackplot have raised over £800 participating in the charity event HomeRun 2020 organised by the homeless charity Shelter. Last year 2,875 people in Scotland slept rough on at least one occasion and a total of 3,415 families have stayed in temporary accommodation like homeless hostels.

Company founder and CTO Gert Riemersma commented. “Thanks to all those who supported us to raise funds for this worthy cause. The event was a welcome challenge and distraction from the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic. It was a excellent way to build team spirit despite not being able to meet up to run together due to Covid restrictions. And it was also a great opportunity to become much fitter. I certainly feel better for all the miles I managed to cover. Everyone got involved in the event and we surpassed our targets for both mileage and money raised.”
