March Half Marathon’s raise over £3,150 for CRASH

In times of uncertainty, we are especially proud of our wonderful supporters who have taken part in our March Half Marathons Month, accepting the challenge to complete the 2020 Vitality Big Half or The Hampton Court Palace Half.

Runners from CRASH Patrons 8build, A.J Morrisroe & Sons, Hanson, Knauf, Sto and Fundraising Champions N-Able Group all completed a 13.1 mile run and raised vital funds for their industry charity, CRASH. Some were first time runners, another flew from Ireland to show their support and Andrew Nightingale from 8build completed his 4th race for CRASH in the last 12 months.

Together, the 7 runners raised an impressive £3,150 for CRASH. The money raised will enable us to continue supporting homelessness charities and hospices with their building projects, in a time where those who are vulnerable are most in need. Thank you to everyone who took part and the generosity of those who sponsored them.

Aaron Atkinson, BIM/Visualisation Manager at A J Morrisroe & Sons said:

‘‘I DID IT! I am really happy with my result for my first marathon run, I can’t wait for the next one.’’

Lucie Gillard, Fundraising Coordinator at CRASH said:

‘‘It’s been a pleasure to support the runners with their fundraising and getting race ready – each one has gone above and beyond to reach their fundraising targets, raising an incredible £3,150 for CRASH. Our work wouldn’t be possible without your support, thank you!”
