RACE FOR LIFE
4×4 Response South (& South West) Wales have been asked to assist with a series of #charity runs on behalf of Cancer Research UK . Under the banner Cancer Research UK Race for Life, the events will be held at various towns and Cities over the forthcoming weeks, and our 4×4 Response group are both honoured and privileged to have been asked to give logistical help and support. It’s a fantastic cause and we were both grateful and humbled to be part of the collaboration.
The first of these events took place today at the Newbridge fields, Bridgend and four of our members were there to assist. Our main duties included setting up / dismantling the twin course ( 3k and 5k runs ), marshaling duties and giving vocal support to those taking part.
We couldn’t help but be impressed by the degree of professionalism dedication and efficiency demonstrated by the organiser’s team.They were cool calm focused and displayed a maturity well beyond their comparative youth.
Again 4×4 Response South Wales proved that we’re ‘#notjustforsnow‘, and were pleased to have enhanced our reputation, public recognition and favourable acceptance, by assisting with a worthy cause and long may this particular partnership flourish.
A massive thank you to the Cancer Research team members for giving us a wonderful welcome and making us feel at ease from the very beginning.
Well done to our Response team for the effort they put in, and I’m sure the sight of so many people (both organisational and those taking part) enjoying themselves immensely and raising vital funds for Cancer Research UK, was reward enough.
