This week our Manchester crew set themselves a fundraising challenge to run the distance between Brown Bag Manchester to Brown Bag Dublin to help raise money for the We Love Manchester appeal!
31 of our Manchester gang ran, jogged, strolled and moonwalked through 20 minute slots on a treadmill in the studio from 11am Monday 5th June until 2.42pm today, Friday 9th June, when after running 284km, (that's 176 miles or 6.76 marathons for you folks at home!), they finally crossed the proverbial finish line!
A HUGE thank you to all the runners who took part in this epic run over the last 5 days, including Dublin's own Learning & Development Manager Arlene Egan who joined the Manchester crew yesterday morning. And an equally HUGE thank you to all the non-runners in the studio for their support and encouragement throughout the week!
Finally, a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has sponsored us and donated to the appeal, we've raised over €2700 so far! The We Love Manchester emergency fund will be able to put your sponsorship to great use. For those of you who still wish to sponsor us, the page is still live:
All the funds raised will go directly to The British Red Cross Society.
