WORKERS across the City are just hours away from competing against each other in the Standard Chartered Great City Race.
The 2012 race on Thursday has attracted the greatest ever amount of runners with the maximum 6,500 places from over 350 companies selling out in record time. The 5K race starts at 19.15 at The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC).
Proceeds from the race will be backing a worthwhile cause, Seeing is Believing, a global initiative that tackles avoidable blindness. £5 from every entry is being donated to the cause and Standard Chartered is matching each donation pound-for-pound.
Employees from all sectors will be cheered over the start line by Seeing is Believing ambassador Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE.
Celebrities such as five-times Paralympic gold medal legend and visually impaired athlete Noel Thatcher MBE will be joining in the fun. and the sports presenters Rishi Persad and Sarah-Jane Mee will be running blindfolded, making a statement about the charity’s cause. Richard Holmes, Standard Chartered Bank CEO Europe said, “I would like to thank everyone who is taking part. I expect the competition will be fierce as always.” Employees here at City AM are also taking part so it is likely to be very fierce indeed. __introduction of
