This year, however, due to COVID-19 and the restrictions to large gatherings, the Walk took a slightly different format with staff, partners and alumni of the firm walking in small groups around their own neighbourhoods.

In a statement released by the firm, ObiomaUbah, Partner and Corporate Responsibility leader noted that the annual walk is an initiative that gives the firm’s staff and alumni an opportunity to give back to the community while promoting healthy living lifestyle.

“This is one of the ways we are making a greater societal impact in line with our Africa societal purpose strategy.  This year the walk is happening simultaneously in small groups across the country, wherever our people reside because of the pandemic and shows our resilience and ability to find new ways of doing the things that really matter”

The charities who receive financial support of one million naira each are nominated and voted for by the staff and the funds are raised through voluntary donations by both staff and alumni of the firm.

He commended the partners, staff and alumni for their commitment to the initiative and assured of the firm’s resolve to continue making a difference in the society through the walk and other similar initiatives.

“It’s been a challenging year no doubt with COVID-19 disrupting our lives in ways we never previously imagined. As a business with a deliberate strategy of making a greater societal impact, earlier in the year, we launched an initiative tagged PwC Cares to support businesses, governments and individuals in responding to the impacts of the pandemic and build resilience.
