Two of our colleagues are participating in a fundraiser event to raise funds for the fight against cancer, raising money for The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR)
Account managers Graeme Gladwinfield and Garry Wright will be travelling to Cumbria next month; joining other members of the office product sector for a gruelling challenge. The team’s aim this year is to cover 2 million steps on the highest fells of the wintery Lakeland mountain range.
The ICR has one vision: a world where people can live their lives free of cancer as a life-threatening disease. They undertake world-class research designed to improve outcomes for people with cancer, making discoveries that help create better drugs to help defeat cancer.
To help the ICR continue their work, Graeme and Garry will be trekking up the Cumbrian peaks in cold and tough conditions, a strenuous and unenviable task for even the fittest adventurer. The trek takes place on Friday 8th November, in what will be the event’s 32nd year. Their aim is to try and beat last year’s total of £103,000 which was raised thanks to the support of many generous sponsors.
We spoke to Graeme who said: “Garry and I are looking forward to the challenge, even though we know it will be tough going in typically cold, wet and windy conditions. We are proud to do our part in raising much-needed funds for the ICR, through the support of so many kind sponsors.”
