An energetic team from here at WAA is gearing up to take part in the Great Midlands Fun Run.
Twelve members of staff are set to complete the 8.5 mile route on June 10th in aid of the WAA Foundation which uses funds to support a variety of local causes.
Andy Wilson has said: “The fun run is a great way for us to show our support to local causes in our hometown. It’s an annual event and we take pride in our great team participation year upon year.
“Mark Degenetais is an avid supporter and has in fact completed the fun run every year since its inception which is a fantastic achievement and one we all look up to.”
The team will be running alongside an estimated 6,000 other participants on the day. To date the Great Midlands Fun Run has raised over £200,000 for charity and organisers hope this year will bring in more donations than ever.
