OtLPR teamed up with colleagues at ELFT to raise money (fundraising) for ELFT charitable funds by running at the Vitality Big Half Marathon on Sunday 1, March.
Taiye Aro, Head of Marketing and Brand Management at OtLPR ran with ELFT staff and service users to raise money for health improvement initiatives to help tackle health inequalities and wider detriments in ELFT Boroughs across Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Luton and Bedfordshire.
Taiye, with little long-distance running experience, completed the half marathon in a time of 2hrs 36 minutes.
“The longest distance I’ve run previously was 10K and that was a good few years ago” said Taiye.
“After I saw ELFT were looking for participants in the staff weekly bulletin, I thought why not? This would be a great way to strengthen my bond with colleagues, raise money for a worthy cause, and challenge myself personally. It was a fantastic experience.”
To date, ELFT needs just 20% to reach its fundraising target. If you would like to make a donation please visit – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/marica-wainner3.
