Casa Environmental Services are delighted that a group of employees will be running the Great South Run this coming October in Portsmouth.
Sadly, we lost a fantastic member of the Casa family last summer after his courageous battle with cancer. Jim was a Portsmouth boy through and through and we thought that we would all take on the challenge of the Great South Run in his memory which will take us around all of his old stomping ground!
We have chosen to fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support as they supported Jim and his family, as well as helping other members of the Casa Team in the past. MacMillan’s work is invaluable for families like Jim’s and there are now an estimated 2.5 million people living with Cancer in the UK so that is a lot of people and families that need help and support. Fortunately, people are now living nearly ten times longer after their cancer diagnosis compared to 40 years ago and all money raised goes to improving these figures and to provide more services and support to people affected by cancer.
‘The Great Run’ have been fundraising for over 30 years with many different events across the country and #TeamCasa are very excited to be taking part, if slightly nervous about running 10 miles!
