About a year ago a group of Jacobs team members in the finance department started running once a week during lunch time. Soon after they decided to set a target to participate in the 2017 Great Scottish Run. Some of them had done the race before, some were experienced runners and some had literally never thought about running 10k before. They now have a few different groups from beginners to experienced runners getting together each week during lunch or after working hours.
“In combination with the running we have also held a weight loss competition in the office promoting healthy eating and regular exercise, this has made everyone aware of the importance of getting away from the desk, even if it’s just for a short walk round the block. For the finance department as a whole, participating in the Great Scottish Run in support of the great work done by Project Ability is truly a win-win!”
We will bring you some of the team’s success stories in the coming week, but in the meantime, we would like to say a huge thank you to all of them for their support. They have already raised £1793 out of their £2000 target! If you would like to support them, please visit our Local Giving Page, where you can donate securely.
Thank you Team Jacobs!
