telent staff set to run, cycle or walk 1100km for Macmillan Cancer Support

Leading technology company, telent, is set to undertake a 1100km-long relay around the UK to raise money for the company’s corporate charity partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support.

Over 220 telent employees will join the challenge by walking, running or cycling part of the route. Taking place on 11th – 15th July 2016, the relay will have two starting points – one in the North and one in the South – with the teams making their way to the finish line at telent’s Headquarters in Warwick.  Many others will be volunteering their time to plan the various relay legs, pit-stop logistics and support their colleagues on route with refreshments and general encouragement.

Mark Plato, CEO at telent, comments: “We are very excited to take on this mammoth challenge. I am delighted that so many staff, as well as some of our customers are getting behind the challenge. Macmillan is an extremely important charity as many of us have and will be affected by cancer in some way during our lives. Through continued donations and fundraising efforts, Macmillan is able to provide much the need support during very difficult times. We’ve set ourselves a target of £100,000 and are asking people to dig deep to support the charity’s on-going efforts.”

Their staff are really pushing themselves with their fundraising and we’ll look forward to supporting them through this huge challenge as well.”
