Meridian London Take on the British 10k
On Sunday 10th July 2016, six members of Meridian’s London Construction branch will take part in the Vitality British 10k London Run for charity.
Mike O’Connell, Jack Harris, Simon Toussaint, Julian Bromage, Charlie Atkinson and Branch Manager Dan Keen are taking on this challenge to raise funds and support for two charities close to their hearts.
The National Autistic Society is the leading UK charity for autistic people and their families. They provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for autistic people. The charity was nominated by Jack Harris as it has aided his younger sister who has grown up with Asperger’s Syndrome.
The team’s second chosen charity, Prostate Cancer UK, was nominated by Mike O’Connell. Mike’s father has been battling prostate cancer for three years and Prostate Cancer UK has been a great source of help and support for all the family.
The Vitality British 10K London Run is staged on the World’s greatest road race route through the heart of central London, passing many of the capitals historical landmarks. The team have already begun training and we will keep you updated on their progress.
