Our incredible CPM Running team
Can you believe the ‘AJ Bell Great Birmingham Run’ was a week ago on Sunday 7th May. We had a team of nine runners at the start of the 10k route already to run in support of raising funds for Cerebral Palsy Midlands. Through collecting sponsorship from work colleagues, family and friends, plus online donations, the team raised an incredible £2092.31! This was well over the groups fundraising target!
Our runners were a collection of people who were staff, volunteers and also a couple of colleagues from supporting organisation ‘Medical Accident Group’. Our team had been training ahead of the race day taking part in local ‘Park Runs’. Each person who entered had their own personal challenge their own fitness challenge to take on. Take a look at some of our favourite memories:
A huge thank you to Sophie and Steph from Midland Accident Group, CPM Staff Craig, Lucy, Wendy, Emma and Sarah. And our fantastic volunteers Paul and Heidi. Natasha had to pull out ahead of the race day due to illness, hopefully Natasha can be in the team next year!
This year’s Great Birmingham Run 10k route featured a brand new route that celebrated the best of Birmingham, including the historic Jewellery Quarter, the Mailbox, Grand Central and St Martin’s at the Bullring.
If you feel like you missed out on taking part this year...the AJ Bell #GreatBirminghamRun is BACK on Sunday 5 May 2024! And next year we would love to support another team of runners. Go CPM Runners!
