Doncaster Team Take on 10K Challenge for Dementia UK
26 Nov 2018
The team at Boxes and Packaging (Doncaster) recently swapped their hi-viz and safety shoes for shorts and trainers when they tackled the Doncaster 10K run to raise money for Dementia UK.
Ten members of the team took part and were joined by a handful of friends and family who also supported the worthwhile cause. With many of them never having run an event before it was a challenge that they all found tough, even those who had embarked on a training programme some weeks earlier.
The fastest time in the B&P team was recorded by Kevin Williams who came over the line in 50 minutes, admirable for someone who only took up running four months ago.
“There has been a great team spirit leading up to the event and this was present on the day too as we all encouraged each other to just make it round!” said Stuart Clark Managing Director Boxes and Packaging (Doncaster) “Together we have raised over £1500 for our chosen charity, supporting an illness that we have all had experience of. I hope that we will be able to do another event in 2019 so that more members of the team can be involved and that we can make it an annual B&P Doncaster challenge.”
Participants in the race were Emma Beer, Karen Wagstaff, Stuart Clarke, Stacey Austin, Kevin Williams, Adam Chorlton, Chris Langton, Tony Hatton and Ryan Downey. They were joined by Stuart’s three sons Ellis, Evan and Rowan.
