MGL Wealth Management Ltd supported Darlington Harriers with their 5km Fun Run which raised more than £3,000 for Children with Cancer UK. The event which took place on Wednesday 28th March was well supported by the local community with around 400 fun runners at the South Park in Darlington.
Elite athletes from local running clubs, whole families and even dogs took part in the event which raised much needed funds for the charity.
MGL Wealth Management Ltd Chartered Financial Planner, Barry Talman and his Practice Manager, Andrew Park were on hand to help with the initial set up and marshalling of the course.
Local running shop, Up and Running helped register the 400 strong fundraisers. Local photographer Karen Harland was on hand to take lots of pictures. Plus, lots of volunteers from Darlington Harriers helped with timekeeping and marshalling.
Barry said: “This is a fantastic example of the whole community coming together to raise lots of money for a worthy cause. The event was great fun, the atmosphere was superb, everyone loved it! I’ve got to say a massive well done to everyone who helped make it a successful event including the organisers, volunteers and those who took part.”
As part of a series of fundraising events to support Children with Cancer, MGL Wealth Management Ltd have arranged a Charity Golf Day at Headlam Hall which has now been rescheduled for Friday 27th April 2018 due to bad weather.
Barry will also be running the London Marathon along with team mates from Darlington Harriers on Sunday 22nd April to raise yet more funds. If you would like to sponsor Barry, please visit BT My Donate page.
