MCL takes on All Roads Lead to Rome Challenge

The team at Mackenzie Construction were proud to participate in the All Roads Lead to Rome challenge in support of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.


While not able to venture on the cycle to Rome in person, we set ourselves the challenge to cycle virtually as far as we could, with Mackenzie Construction donating £1 for each mile cycled.


The challenge ran between the 4th and 6th of March across all four Mackenzie Construction offices, Glasgow, Inverness, Dundee and Newcastle, as well as one of our working sites at Queens Cross Housing. With stationary bikes placed at each of our four offices, as well as our working site, we encouraged all employees to take part. For those who couldn’t make it to the office or on-site, we encouraged them to cycle in their own time, be that at the gym or out on their own bike, recording their miles for the challenge.

We were delighted to have the support of Glasgow Warriors for this challenge. Players Ollie Smith and Jack Mann along with some Warriors staff, came out to our headquarters in Glasgow, helping the team gain some extra miles. Thanks again to the Warriors for their continued support.


Over the course of the 3-day challenge, we achieved 784.7 miles, meaning £784.70 will go directly to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.


Mackenzie Construction’s Health & Wellbeing Coordinator, Nina Devaney, said of the challenge:


“I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in our All Roads Lead to Rome challenge between the 4th – 6th of March. From our offices in Inverness, Dundee, Glasgow, and Newcastle, our Queens Cross Housing site, our Crinan teams and some help from the Glasgow Warriors, it was a great effort. While it was a tough challenge for us, we take our hats off and congratulate the team who took the actual journey to Rome, well done for all your hard work, a fantastic achievement for a brilliant cause!”


If anyone would still like to sponsor us to help ensure we raise as much money as possible, please check out our JustGiving page where all proceeds will go to My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, who fund research and raise awareness of MND to help anyone touched by MND.
