Optimus may have grown over the years but that hasn’t derailed the community ethos that has been central to the company since its inception in 2006. Even with Optimus making a leap into the American the hard work still goes on to support the local community and beyond.
The Optimus team works tirelessly for their clients but like to put back into their hometown and give meaning to the social side of teamwork through charitable events. This starts from the top down with CEO Mark Russell encouraging the team to take part in fundraising events throughout the calendar year. In March 2020, members of the Optimus team have signed up for a charity abseil at Plymouth Argyle Football Club to raise money for the charity, Hugs for Henry. The charities aim is to support families affected by childhood cancer and neuroblastoma. The team at Optimus fully support the campaign and are looking forward to the event, even if a few are afraid of heights!
The Optimus team have taken part in many events over the years and none more so than Optimus veteran Martin Hart. Martin will have been at the company for 12 years in July and last year took on an epic fundraising challenge as he walked 118 miles for Cancer Research. Over five days, Martin walked from Dartmouth to Mevagissey, breaking the journey down into sections. Starting at Dartmouth, Martin travelled through Torcross, Salcombe, Bigbury, Plymouth, Whitsand, Polperro, Charlestown and finally ending at his destination in Mevaggissey, a truly remarkable feat.
It wasn’t just Martin doing the walking, as the entire Optimus team put in place a pledge to walk over 250 competitive miles in 2019. With their trainers on, they tackled half marathons from across the region including Plymouth and Bristol, a midnight walk and even an inflatable 5K in Torbay to help them to their 250 mile target, raising hundreds of pounds in the process.
So, whilst 2020 will see Optimus aiming for new heights in the Affiliate Marketing world, March will see them looking down as they abseil from the top of Plymouth Argyle Football Club on March 28th.
