Contigo smashes fun-run fundraising targetPress Release, 16/Sep/2011 - Sally Procter
A team from Solihull-based energy software developer Contigo have raised over £1,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s Children’s Heart Appeal, which is looking to replace the existing, ageing cardiac facility, and build a second specialist operating theatre.
The 9-strong team – who sported fetching tu-tus in ‘Contigo Racing Green’ – completed the 5 kilometre course at the recent Blythe Valley Fun Run, and managed to smash their initial fundraising target.
Jon Yeomans, Managing Director, Contigo, said: “I know that I speak for the rest of the team when I say how delighted we are with having secured over £1,000 for this appeal. We only started training a month ago with walks and a group jog a couple of times a week but we were all determined to finish the course. I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to an extremely worthy cause.”
