This year some of the team here at Limelight decided it was time to do our bit for charity (and our waistlines!) by having a little fun celebrating Movember. So Susanna, Charlotte, Laura, Matt North, Sarah, Matt Shaw, Drew and Danielle signed up to Mo-Running.
Mo Running, created by The Fix UK, proudly supports Movember and their fundraising for Men’s Health and in particular the Prostate Cancer Charity.
When we originally signed up Race Day seemed like weeks away – but suddenly it was the event weekend and ready or not we would have to face a 5K run!
Bright and early yesterday morning (27th November), after the usual kafuffle of London transport, we arrived at Battersea Park bandstand. Mos and Limelight tees in place we warmed up in anticipation of the 5K run.
Weaving through the crowd of 700 runners the Limelight team made a sterling effort and everyone completed the 5K run in brilliant times.
Matt Shaw was super speedy, finishing the race the quickest of the Limelighters in just 19 minutes and 52 seconds!
Proud of our accomplishments we hit the pub for a well-deserved feast, cancelling out all the calories burnt off in the run, and then some.
All-in-all a great day which we’re all keen to repeat again– so bring on the next charity run where we can all smash our previous times!
