Leyland SDM lace up a 5km fundraiser

Posted on 30 September 2022

Here at Leyland SDM we’ve been putting in the hard yards to prepare for a 5km challenge and raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, who we’ve partnered with for the past three years (raising more than £120,000 to date!).

Our Leyland SDM team of 29 runners will join the RunThrough Hyde Park 5km event on 15thOctober to raise even more cash to support people affected by cancer.

Many of those taking part in the event are not regular runners so have been following the Couch to 5K programme to get themselves ready. We’ve seen some serious displays of effort – running in the early hours before work, in the rain after work, on holidays and on 40thbirthdays!

Our CEO, Jonathan Jennings, will also be running on the day and says:

“We love overcoming challenges, particularly if it also gives back to the community. That’s why we are encouraging colleagues who have never run before to train using Couch to 5k and really challenge themselves to help our charity partner Macmillan. It takes a huge amount of stamina and character to fight cancer, so we are showing our appreciation of this by pushing ourselves to complete this run.”

Every penny we raise through sponsorship and in-store donations will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

If you’re at the RunThrough Hyde Park 5km you’ll spot us in our blue Leyland running shirts. Please cheer us on, give us a high five or pick us up off the floor!

If you’d like to donate, we’d be so grateful.

You can do this on ourLeyland GoFundMe.
