Team Christie Runners
Team! ‘Help Us Help Them’ storyKenny Waste Management Ltd are proud to be a corporate partner of The Christie.
Through our Social Enterprise, Driving Change, we aim to raise a minimum of £3,000 in aide of their Resources for Pediatric Patients within their Teenage & Young Adult Unit.
Each and every year, the young people within their care finish their treatment and The Christie want to give something back by offering them a gift.
In order to be able to do this, they need annual funding to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for their very young patients.Driving Change was launched in 2018 with a view to supporting the local community around our Head Office in Greater Manchester.
We do this by providing apprenticeships, employing long-term unemployed and offering a second chance to ex-offenders.
Our aim is to change 20 lives by 2020.
As part of this initiative we have partnered with The Christie and our amazing staff are taking part in various challenges, throughout the year, to raise funds.
Below is why three staff members are taking part…Myself (Daisy), Laura and Paul are taking part in Rough Runner, because everyone is affected by cancer at some point in their lives, it could be your family, your friend or yourself, and its not pleasant. Unfortunately It does not discriminate by age, or gender, it affects everyone, including young people and children.
So we want to do something good, trying to make a positive out of a negative. We're going to be competing in 'Rough Runner' at Arley Hall, Cheshire in June, and we need your sponsorships to help people who have cancer, get the best treatment, to shine a light at the end of that tunnel. Every penny counts, so please donate what you can!
For those not in the know, Rough Runner is an obstacle course, a bit like 'Total Wipe-out'. so we will be wet, muddy and completely embarrassed by the end of it. For anyone who would like to come and watch, it will make for some amazing entertainment. Bring your cameras, I'm sure people would pay good money to make a meme out of us on the day :)
We all work for Kenny Waste Management, and we are honored to be supporting The Christie this year, so please help us to help them!
