Three members of the Northern Media marketing team have been working hard over recent weeks as they began training for their upcoming local charity runs.
Sales director, Jonathan Scott, and marketing executives Anthony Bowyer and Carolanne Minter, have been preparing to run to raise money for local charities, with Carolanne already completing the Asda Foundation York 10k on August 2nd.
Carolanne, who completed the race in 66 minutes and 23 seconds, was running to raise money for The Eve Merton Dreams Trust, a Doncaster-based charity that helps cancer patients of all ages realise their dream and make it come true.
Speaking after the event, Carolanne said:
“This is the first charity run I have ever done and I was a complete beginner when I started training. It was hard work, but I trained for around four months prior to the run, going several times a week. The run was tough at parts but I really enjoyed it and it’s nice to run for a good cause – I am just so glad I did it!”
Meanwhile, Jonathan and Anthony will be running the Catterick Para 10 Mile Run at Catterick Garrisonon September 6th to raise money for Wakefield Hospice and Wakefield children’s charity Levi’s Star. The tough ten mile event will see the duo run over rough terrain as well as up and down hills.
Jonathan Scott, said:
“We as a team feel like it is really important to come together to help local charities and that’s why we collectively take part in numerous events all across the region.
“So far, my training has been going well and I have been running at every chance I get, even between leaving my networking group on a Friday morning and coming back to the office! I chose to donate my sponsorship money to Wakefield based charity Levi’s Star because I not only know the founders and have a close relationship with them, but I see the benefits the charity brings to young children with brain tumours and their families. I am just raring to go now, it’s going to be a fantastic day!”
Anthony Bowyer, added:
“Jonathan and I are really looking forward to the challenge, but it has been difficult for me since I injured myself running at my local sports club. Thankfully though, I am now back on track, with my main challenge being able to turn my 400m speed into a 10 mile endurance.
“I decided to donate my money to Wakefield Hospice because in my experience they provide so much support to families through their time of need. It is small local charities like this hospice, Levi’s Star and The Eve Merton Dreams Trust that really need the support of the local community behind them, and that’s why we put ourselves through these things, to make people aware and raise money for them.”
Jonathan and Anthony are looking to complete the 10 mile run in under 90 minutes.
