The TR Midlands team smash their £1,000 target whilst joining hundreds of runners at Himley Hall
On Sunday 3rd July, TR employees and their friends took part in the Race for Life, Himley Park, Dudley. The team, who were joined by 900 other participants, had a very successful walk, and raised an impressive £1,650.00 through generous donations from fellow staff members, friends, and family.
A grand total of £33,000 was raised by all attendees who took part in the race at Himley Hall, this is an amazing total and will make a great difference to Cancer Research and the people sadly affected.
The TR WSP team comments:
"We lost our friend and colleague Carol in March to cancer, in addition to a rose bush and bench at TR WSP and just because she was such a big part of our TR family here, we wanted to do something further in her memory that we could all be involved in, so Leanne suggested race for life and we all agreed so we could raise money for cancer research and at the same time pay tribute to Carol.
At the end of the race we also pinned our race for life memory card with a picture of Carol onto the memory wall."
The team were also featured in the Local Express & Star. Click here to view!
