Team of 10 to tackle half marathon

Yeovil road plodders!

Time 672 days ago Comments 0 comments

A team of 10 from Leonardo Helicopters is taking on the Yeovil Half Marathon this year, and they’re looking to raise some serious funds for Stop Hunger. Why not support the cause and sponsor them a few pounds?

Operatives, engineers, supervisors and managers of all abilities and ages are in training for the event, happening on 26 March 2017.

“Our first aim is to reach the start line!” jokes manager Jan Janssen. “Anything after that is a bonus I suppose – hopefully we’ll cross the finish line before the sun sets (the race starts at 9am).”  

The gang has set a modest fundraising target of £400, but is hoping that, with support from colleagues, they can smash that.

“Above all else this is starting to create a great team atmosphere, and put a focus on wellbeing and fantastic people engagement,” adds Jan.

“I don’t think anyone is looking to beat the pack but complete either a personal best or just live another day to tell the tale to their future grandkids.”

What a great effort! Any support you can give the team is welcome. Go to their fundraising page.

DON’T FORGET! Stop Hunger Day is 9 May this year. It’s never too early to start making plans.
