Why WCG Created Our Manifesto

One of the questions I have been asked most frequently over the years by people is about what makes WCG special.  There is a unique quality that you feel when accessing our services, partnering with us in the community or collaborating with one of our team members.  It’s hard to articulate in just one word, and over time people have joked about it being the “WCG Kool-Aid” or “WCG’s Secret Sauce”. Both of those answers are a little vague and amusing, especially given the context of our work.

Every trainer I have ever spoken to or worked with stresses the importance of cross training.  Always being one to listen to subject matter experts, I undertook a bit of cross training on Saturday.  I mucked out a few paddocks with my youngest daughter! And then I walked a half marathon!  It was a hot and humid day, but all systems were go!

Wow, week two is complete! Total pledges to date – eight! 60 for 60 easily within reach with the marathon taking place on October 8, 2017. Thank you all! I feel stronger and more motivated every time I walk (and have fewer aches and pains afterward!) Proof that consistency and continuity can build resilience. I use the RunKeeper app to track my distance and monitor my pace – I’ve achieved 8:44 min/km – my fastest pace for a 6 km thus far.
