Scott Bader colleagues run for The Brain Tumour Charity and raise nearly £7000!

Last year 28 Scott Bader colleagues came together to form the ‘Mind Over Miles’ running team to take part in the Simply Health Birmingham Half Marathon and raise vital funds and awareness for the Brain Tumour Charity. The team have since collected £3405 which with matched funding from Scott Bader meant that last week they were able to finally present The Brain Tumour Charity with a BIG cheque – literally – for £6,811.00!

Steph Bird, Community Fundraiser from The Brain Tumour Charity comments:

“We cannot thank all the Scott Bader runners enough for their fantastic fundraising efforts in completing the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run! Their determination and hard-work, despite the awful weather, was truly incredible. Not only have they raised vital awareness of brain tumours, together they fundraised a fantastic £6.811. This could fund over 27 days of research into brain tumours, helping us to accelerate change and bringing us closer to a cure.”

Motivated by their achievement, The Scott Bader ‘Mind Over Miles’ team are currently busy planning their next running challenge for 2019!
