A crack team of RD:IR athletes took to the streets of London yesterday to run in the annual Vitality 10K on behalf of Lymphoma Action. Around 23,000 runners pounded the streets of London on a warm morning for the capital, beginning on the Mall, heading through the City and looping back round near Bank to finish by Buckingham Palace.
Lymphoma Action has been chosen as our charity for 2019 after a colleague was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma towards the end of last year. The charity is the only charity in the UK dedicated solely to lymphoma, informing & supporting those affected by the disease, and connecting them with experts.
Now our colleague is in remission as of last week, he proceeded to run a strong race and did the company and all those supporting proud. David Bissell came in at a very respectable 42 minutes, putting RD:IR within touching distance of Mo Farah’s winning time of 28 minutes. Our leading lady, Andrea Miz, crossed the line in an impressive 54 minutes.
A huge thank you to all those who donated, allowing us to smash our target of £1,000. There is still time to donate, so please feel free to do so by clicking here. We are passionate about this cause and appreciate every penny!
