Action Medical Research is delighted to have the support of Surrey-based Bridgehead Software Ltd, based in Ashtead, who have taken part in a number of fundraising challenges for the children’s charity, most notably the annual ‘Race The Sun’ series, who to date have raised just over £31,000 for Action.
Their first event was in 2013. They were looking for an outdoor teambuilding experience and came across this event organised by Action and have been hooked ever since. They have recently signed up to take on the new Offa’s Dyke route in 2019.
The ‘Race The Sun’ events are run in various locations across the country; they involve teams cycling, hiking and canoeing their way around 50 mile courses from sunrise to sunset. Bridgehead have had teams compete in six different ‘Race the Sun’ events so far and one year we even had colleagues join us from their US office near Boston, MA.
“Once we read more about the charity and learned about the vital work it does, we were keen to get more involved.”
Bridgehead’s Senior Director of Marketing John McCann
