A Virtual Challenge
Like each and every one of us, we all had plans this year which have now gone awry but for one of our employees, they’re taking on a virtual challenge.
We were looking forward to participating in two local events to raise funds for our charity of the year, Rose Road Association. The ABP half marathon/10K run through Southampton and the Romsey Relay Marathon were firmly on the calendar this year, with some staff wanting to do both and were no doubt preparing for the challenge with fitness regimes all mapped out.
But for one of our employees, he has turned the situation into a positive one by continuing his challenge on his own.
Design draughtsperson Vim Prajapati is planning to run his own marathon, between Monday 20th April and Sunday 26th April. He will do the marathon distance in 10km parts across this week, with the final 12km run on Sunday 26th April, and obviously adhering to government advice.
Vim is continuing his challenge and is looking for support by way of donations which will go to Southampton Hospitals Charity. This is our local NHS hospital, which also happens to be the souths leading healthcare provider.
‘I think hospitals need all the help they can be given in the current situation’ said Vim, who has already exceeded his target and is currently at £144.
So please support Vim in his quest to support the NHS by donating to his fundraising page
