Step Forward seemed like a great way for us to get our hiking boots on, get in some team bonding and also raise money for a very worthwhile cause.

We’d encourage other companies to take part because it's a great way for teams to come together away from their desks and explore their local areas, or further afield. Team Cloudsoft
