Jog On To Cancer 2016
Raising money for charity is something close to everyone’s heart so when James Ingham from Daily Star on Sunday invited us to his event ‘Jog On To Cancer’, the comms team jumped at the chance.
For the fourth year in a row, James threw an almighty party in Kensington Roof Gardens to raise money to fight cancer and seven of the PrettyGreen comms team went to cheer him on. With auctions for boxes at The Emirates stadium and topless members of the Dreamboys wandering around, the atmosphere was electric and everyone was keen to get the purses (and wallets) out.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the highlight for all seven attending members was the performance from 5ive (who knew that Rhea knew every single word to ALL of their songs?!) and some serious moves were thrown on the dance floor. A few cocktails and many auctions later…. James had risen over £50,000 for Cancer Research. Oh, and did we mention that he is also running the marathon in a few weeks too? What a trooper.
Huge thanks to James for having us (a few sore heads in the office today), but most importantly thanks to James for helping to beat such a horrible disease. 1 in 3 of us will be affected by cancer at some point in our lives, which is a petrifying statistic. We can all still donate to James and support his marathon running in a few weeks time. Dig deep people!
