In less than four months, The Assessment Group (made up of VTCT, ITEC and Digital Assess), will get their sports kit on and run the 10-mile Great South Run 2017 in aid of Naomi House.
Taking place on 22 October 2017, The Great South Run is an annual 10-mile road running race which takes place in Portsmouth, Hampshire – just down the motorway from The VTCT Eastleigh office. Since its formation in 1990, The Great South Run has become one of Europe’s most popular mass participation races over 10 miles.
Team members Anna, Ben, Chris, Dave, Devi, Gary, Laura, Lyall, Lucy, Luke, Pam, Natasha, Sam, Tom and Vicky have already begun their training in preparation for the race, including a weekly running club. The organisation has pledged support by funding the entrance fee, running kit, and allocated time for training during office hours.
The Assessment Group’s 2017 nominated charity of the year is Naomi House Children’s Hospice (Wessex Children’s Hospice Trust). The charity provides excellence in hospice care to support local children and young adults.
The fundraisers have set up a JustGiving page to collect donations of support for the event. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.
