The Great South Run 2017 for local cancer charity
On Sunday 22nd October, Compass Associates will be taking part in the Great South Run 2017 entering a team of 10 runners into the Business Challenge for the 4th year in a row – our biggest team yet! The team will take on the gruelling 10 mile course through Portsmouth and Southsea taking in historic and modern landmarks including HMS Victory, Southsea Castle and the iconic Spinnaker Tower.
This year, the team have chosen to raise money for local charity, Harbour Cancer Support. Harbour Cancer Support are an independent charity offering practical and emotional support to anyone affected by cancer across South East Hampshire. The service is completely free to users and they are totally reliant on donations. The centre is based in Gosport and has been running for 16 years, offering a safe haven for cancer patients, their families, carers and friends where they can receive much needed support throughout their cancer journey.
The charity was chosen as one of the team’s parents used the service following their cancer diagnosis and the team wanted to support a local, independent charity.
The team have a fundraising target of £550. If you would like to make a donation, please click here.
