Bristol 10k – ARAG get in the community spirit to support charity
As part of our Corporate Responsibility Programme this year ARAG pledge to raise money for the Ronald McDonald house in Bristol. They are an independent charity, which provides free of charge home from home accommodation, to the families of critically ill children, receiving care at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. To kick start our fundraising for this year’s charity we have entered a team for the Bristol 10k which takes place on Sunday 31 May.
As an avid runner and entering my 7th year of running this event I am aiming to improve on last year’s finishing time of 59 minutes. Having visited the house earlier this year I realise how fortunate I am to have two healthy boys and my experience of meeting one of the residential parents will spur me on to train hard, support my fellow runners and achieve my goal.
I am really looking forward to organising this charity run in partnership with Ronald McDonald. Running brings together a diverse cross-section of people, from those who want to shed a few pounds before going on holiday to those who take part socially to make new friends.
At ARAG the one thing we have in common is raising funds to refurbish a bedroom or provide play equipment for the garden at Ronald McDonald House.
