Team KC raise most money for local chairties
Team KC before the Hull 10K
THE team of 24 runners from KC that took part in the Jane Tomlinson Hull 10K Corporate Challenge earlier this year has been presented with theaward for raising the most money for charity.
The team raised £5,812, with £2,775 going to Hull Children’s University and £3,037 to the Dove House Hospice Love You 2 Appeal.
KC was one of 35 teams that took part in the Corporate Challenge,which brought together over 400 people from businesses across East Yorkshire. The Corporate Challenge provides businesses with opportunities to network and pitch themselves against other organisations to be crowned the fastest team and the biggest fundraisers.
The Jane Tomlinson Hull 10K, organised by Mike Tomlinson, widower of the late Jane Tomlinson said: “To get 24 runners in the Corporate Team is a fantastic effort but in the middle of a global recession to raise £5,812 is truly astonishing, and credit to KC and their staff.”
KC’s Community Relations Manager Anna Millar was the Team Leader for the KC runners. She said: “Team KC is over the moon at being crowned the biggest fundraisers of the Hull 10K. We encourage our employees to get involved in various community and charity activities and the Hull 10K is a great example – it brings people together who might not work together and it’s a chance to improve their health and fitness, but the ultimate winners are local charities.
“The Love You 2 Appeal and Hull Children’s University are two fantastic local charities who we have a great relationship with already. The Hull 10K is just another way that we’ve been able to support them both.”
Next year’s event takes place on Sunday 3 June. To register click here
