Run Owen Run!
Owen Coyne director of Wickman Group is taking part in the Great North Run on Sunday 7th September 2014. This 13.1 mile race will take place in Newcastle, Northern England to raise money and awareness for a number of charities and ultimately help to make a huge difference to the lives of those affected.
Owen has selected CLIC Sargent as his charity to fund. CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. From diagnosis onwards, CLIC Sargent aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
Every day 10 children are told that they have cancer …every penny donated to a cancer charity adds up to saving a life. Owen will be running on behalf of Wickman to raise awareness for CLIC Sargent.
The event will be broadcast live on BBC TV, so if you can’t get up there to see it– tune in to watch thousands of people come together from all over the world to show their support to the people who need it the most.
