Career Moves Group team run 10k for charity
Steve, Eleanor, Richard, Amy and Billy ran in the pelleting rain past many of London’s iconic landmarks and made up five of the circa 30,000 runners who ran in the capital’s 10km to raise money for charity.
With a collective running time of 1 hour 7 minutes, both Eleanor and Rich had the joint-fastest running time on the day of 1 hour 1 minute and 58 seconds. The “Speedy Runners,” team have so far raised a total of £525 for LALU.
LALUis currently raising funds for complementary therapies that will be available to haematology patients and families at their new cancer centre on Huntley Street and on the wards at UCH. Such therapy can really lift the spirits of leukaemia and lymphoma sufferers. One patient in day-care commented, “Whilst I was having reflexology I actually felt well. It was the only time I have felt like that since the moment I first got my diagnosis and it was such an enjoyable feeling”.
LALUis also gearing up to fund phase 4 of their young adults unit for patients 19, with facilities for a future day room and relaxation area. With so many positive initiatives being developed by LALU for patients, Career Moves Group and others supporting the charity are trying to raise as much money as possible this year.
Caroline Foote, Managing Director, Career Moves Group says, “I am extremely proud of my colleagues who ran the British 10km on Sunday. The money they have raised is going towards an excellent cause and it’s inspiring to know that such facilities will be available for the families and carers of leukaemia and lymphoma sufferers.”
