After self indulging over mince pies and Christmas pudding over the festive season (doesn’t everyone?!) we felt the need to get a challenge on our hands for the start of 2013…
Team Enterprise decided to get their running shoes out and entered into the RUN GARIOCH 5/10k event in Inverurie. We decided to do this all in aid of BEFRIEND A CHILD – a small Aberdeen charity helping deprived children by providing a stable adult role model. Find out more about this great charity HERE.
With Enterprise staff and tenants from our Newmachar, Crichiebank and Thainstone Business Centres, we entered a strong team of 13 runners. Some of the team had done a lot of this before and had very good running experience, however a few members joined up for a 10 week grueling training programme through Garioch Sports Centre to get them fighting fit for the race!
After battling every possible weather element over the last couple of months, the day finally arrived to “Run Garioch” on Sunday 24th March 2013.
We were met with a very cold, snowy and rainy day, but that didn’t take away from the fantastic atmosphere and cheering from spectators………. And as we write this, we are thankful to say we survived the 5k and 10k races and got our Run Garioch Medals!!
We would like to thank every one who sponsored all team members for the run. We are very proud to share with you that we raised a fantastic amount of……..
£1428.00 for Befriend a Child!!
We are absolutely over the moon with the grand total, which is more than double our target amount, a great sense of achievement.
Team Enterprise would also like the thank the entire Run Garioch team who organized a brilliant event, and battled through the weather elements to make it a very enjoyable day.
Until next year……..Back to blog
