The Conference People are proud to be supporting Team Run 12 in the work their mammoth 2014 marathon challenge as the Official Accommodation Sponsor.
Rebecca Beard of Software of Excellence, a Client of The Conference People is planning to complete twelve marathons to raise £25,000 for charity.
The money Team Run 12 raise will go towards Cancer Care and Cancer Research UK.
Becky was bitten by the fundraising bug after raising over £10,000 in just 88 days for Breast Cancer Care by running the London Marathon in April 2013. Looking for a new challenge, Becky created ‘Team Run 12’ – twelve marathons in twelve months. Becky will be supported by a team of guest runners – as well as a large support team.
The Conference People are part of that support team, and will be responsible for all the accommodation at each of the marathons for Becky and her running team. As well as the accommodation, The Conference People have been helping Becky source venues for her various fund raising events.
Robert Enefer, Managing Director of The Conference People says “this is such a worthwhile cause, we were delighted and honoured to be asked to be involved – we’re all behind Becky 110%”
Sarah Osborne from Breast Cancer Care, added: “Every year in the UK, 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer. We want to be there for each and every one of them.
“This is why we’re so grateful to Becky and the rest of Team Run 12 for all the hard work they are putting in to organising this event. Every penny raised will make a huge difference to the lives of people affected by breast cancer and allow us to be there for more and more people.”
Avni Thakrar from Cancer Research UK said “1 in 3 people are affected by cancer, and whilst cancer survival rates have doubled in the past 40 years there is still so much work to do. We need your help to continue our research”.
