GREAT THINGS FOR THE GREATER GOOD
Our ability to positively impact health, happiness and well-being goes far beyond the physical. For us, creating a fitter planet means doing as much good as we can for the earth, our communities and causes we believe are important to global health and well-being. It’s a sense of purpose that’s inspiring to be a part of - no matter what role you do or team you’re in, your actions contribute to something that really is driving positive change in the world. These are just some of the initiatives we’re proud to be part of.
The partnership between Les Mills and UNICEF is built on the foundation of creating a world where all children are born to survive and thrive. In 2017 we delivered our first major joint initiative - a global charity activation dubbed Workout For Water.
We work with the social enterprise, Ekos, to calculate the level of carbon dioxide we emit as a business from our Auckland, London, Chicago, Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, Stockholm and Hamburg offices. We then offset this through tree planting projects in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
MOTUTAPU ISLAND OUTREACH DAYS
Motutapu Island, located just 30 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland, is the site of the largest ecological restoration endeavor in New Zealand. Les Mills takes part in regular volunteer days on Motutapu Island, sending teams to help the Restoration Trust with labour work such as nursery work, site clearing and tree planting.
THE LES MILLS FUND FOR CHILDREN
Our Les Mills UK Team proudly have the Les Mills Fund For Children foundation, which raises money to donate to causes with the mandate of increasing activity of young people in the UK and Ireland.
The Les Mills Fund For Children awards the funds raised to carefully selected organisations who we believe will do their most to improve the education and physical and emotional wellbeing of children.
