Last year, we put together a team of ‘Rightio Roadrunners’ to take on the challenge of the Great Birmingham Run – a 10 kilometre route through the centre of our home city – and we’re back to face that test again!
With twice as many runners taking part in the trial this year, the team are back in their training gear and have already began preparing for the 10K. With weekly Rightio Running Club sessions taking place, we’re sure the Roadrunners will be in tip-top condition for the race on 30th April.
This year, we will be fundraising for our Charity of the Year – Birmingham Children’s Hospital. All the money we raise will go towards the purchase of much needed new equipment in the Hospitals’ Ward 10. Ward 10 is the Department of Neurosciences, and provides a specialist service for children who require Neurosurgery, Epilepsy Surgery, Neuro-rehabilitation and Craniofacial Surgery.
Our JustGiving pages are all set up and we have already started collecting donations, so please feel free to visit and donate if possible – every penny helps! We’ll also be running fundraisers around the office to help raise as much as possible to help the Hospital reach their goal for Ward 10.
Thank you to everyone who sponsors and supports us in this gruelling 10K challenge. We’re all looking forward to the race and are excited to raise some serious funds for this incredibly worthwhile cause!
Great Birmingham 10K, here we come!..
