Healthspan Staff join in with a Customer Hero challenge
Posted 23 May 2013 12:00 AM by Healthspan Heroes
Meeting at 9am on Sunday morning to run 10km might not be everyone's first choice for a bank-holiday weekend activity- but a group of 5 Healthspan staff had a very enjoyable morning, running with a truly brilliant lady. Dee is half way through her self-imposed challenge to run 10km in every city in the UK over a 69-week period, so we were a little apprehensive about keeping up with her!
We could not have wished for a better morning- bright sunshine, a slight breeze to keep us refreshed and a human tide of 11,000 runners to sweep us along the course that passed the S.S. Great Britain and under the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge.
We were an evenly matched bunch, all finishing within 5 minutes of each other- not quite Dee's fastest time, but certainly up there.
It was great to run with Dee, meet her parents and understand the huge commitment that our Customer Heroes have to the causes they support: we sincerely hope we can take part in some other events with other award winners in future.
Dee has her own view on the day's events in her challenge diary/blog- tap the photo below to read more about it.
Thank you to all our colleagues who took part in the event and those who sponsored us too.
