Northern Media has sponsored XBM Director Richard Taylor as he embarks on the Great North Run on the 9th September 2018 in Newcastle, raising money for Tynedale Hospice at Home Rainbows Project.
Richard sadly lost someone close to him 18 months ago and wanted to do the run in his memory. Tynedale Hospice at Home Rainbows Project has helped his friend’s family (Michelle, Eve, Zak and Mitch) massively.
Richard, who was not a runner before taking on this challenge, has been training regularly and is also taking part in 10K road and woodland races in the North East in preparation for the world’s most famous half marathon event.
Northern Media was happy to help Richard as he tries to raise £500 for the charity. Sales Director Jonathan Scott said: “When Richard asked if we would sponsor him, it was an easy decision. Not only do we support many local and national charities, we have many runners in our office and we understand how hard it is to run 13.1 miles for the very first time. We wish Richard all the very best for the challenge.”
