For the last three years Meeting Needs has entered a team in the Royal Parks Half Marathon and every year the number of people willing to challenge themselves and raise money for the Event Industry’s own charity has grown. The 2018 entry is no exception and we are delighted to announce that there will be 28 runners representing over 19 different organisations operating in the world of events.

Drawn from event agencies and suppliers our runners will be working hard to raise funds for Meeting Needs and this year we hope to raise a record amount of money to support at least five worthy causes and changing the lives of those most in need.

Jennifer Jenkins, Chair of Meeting Needs commented “I’m excited by the diverse range of people who have volunteered to run for us this year. We will be doing our very best to support their fundraising and follow some of their individual stories as they take on this challenge. We would like you to support your colleagues and friends by donating as much as you can and give them an incredible incentive to take part and show your appreciation for their efforts”

The full list of runners is below and you can sponsor them by going to VirginMoneyGiving and searching for the person you would like to support. Why not, as a company, adopt a runner and see if you can’t get them past their target!
