A team of 9 employees from the SUEZ Water UK Bristol office took part in the Rough Runner event in Bristol on the 24th June.

After a month of fundraising through JustGiving, other social media campaigning and baking goods to sell in the office, the team raised over £1100 for their chosen charities.

  • Diabetes UK – £534.56
  • Dementia UK – £239.05
  • Street Child – £219.05
  • CentrePoint – £110.00

In addition to raising a significant amount of money for their chosen causes, the event also acted as a great way to build team spirit outside of the office. The Rough Runner combines distance running (10km) with a variety of game show-inspired obstacles (think Gladiators, Ninja Warrior and Total Wipeout!). Getting around the course requires team work and collaborative effort. The team completed the course in just over 2 hours.
