NHS staff swap tunics for trainers raising £6000 for North Mid Charity
North Mid staff swapped scrubs for sweatshirts this past weekend, as they took on one of the most idyllic runs in the capital to tackle the Royal Parks Half Marathon.
Nine members of North Mid Staff ran 13.1 miles to complete the stunning central London Half Marathon, taking in some of the capital's world-famous landmarks, and four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens
Runner and data specialist Daniel Sowoolu said:
“It was a great experience and even though it was hard at times, it was an amazing feeling to get over the finishing line at the end. It was great to support each other in our training and some of us even managed to complete the race together which was a great feeling. To top that off it was great to know that we had raised so much for North Mid Charity!”
Fundraising manager Mete Redif who worked with the runners to maximise their fundraising efforts, said:
“We are truly grateful for the time and effort which colleagues went to during their training and race day for the Royal Parks Half Marathon. Not only did they push themselves during the physical training, but they also went above and beyond with their fundraising efforts. A special mention must go to Jo Keeble and Sita Chitambo who raised over £1,000 each!
A huge congratulations and thank you to our North Mid Royal Parks Team of 2022:
“We will be using the money raised by our runners to help make the approaching festive season as wonderful as possible for our patients and staff. Being in hospital over Christmas can be tough for patients and their relatives, and all our staff who work over the festive period will obviously be sacrificing some of their own family time to look after our patients. So we are turning our efforts now to campaigns which will help bring fun to the festivities.”
We have a number of campaigns currently running, and you can donate them or to our general fund online .
