Head of Marketing To Take The London Marathon Head On
Cast your minds back a year and you may remember Selesti headed to the sidelines of the London Marathon to cheer on 92 Samaritans runners. Well this year we are proud to say we’ll be cheering on a Selestian.
Yes, you heard right, our very own Head of Marketing, Mark Cook will be running this year to raise money for Standing Together Against Domestic Violence, a charity that influences national policies and practices, and works with survivors of domestic violence.
“Everyone has been really supportive in my fundraising efforts so far. Not many people have heard of Standing Together before and I feel it’s something, even as a charity that has some stigma attached to it. The people there are doing a really good job and important work, so I’m going to do my best to raise what I can to support their efforts.”
Mark’s training has seen him running on icy grounds, through wind and rain, and with a smidge over 2 months to go, training is really hotting up! He has run a 20km stretch before, but at less than half a marathon - in his own words - Mark knows that he has ‘a long way to go’. He also completed a Tough Mudder last October, so we are confident our Head of Marketing can overcome each of the 26 miles, and the 385 yards come April the 26th.
Thanks to generous donations Mark is 77% of the way to his £1,000 target at time of writing.
