AWOL & Cancer Research: Run Chloe, Run

In December 2014, we announced as a business that we would be supporting Cancer Research, donating £1000 in the name of the business. We opted not to send Christmas cards, instead saving paper and advising our clients and our team that we felt our support of a charity working on a disease that affects both some of the office team personally, and statistically 1 in every 3 of of the people we work with, supply and speak to every single day, was the right thing to do.

As a business, it is our ongoing mission to support Cancer Research as our designated charity and we hope that this is something you will be proud to tell people about whether we’re you’re a part of the AWOL Team or you’re one of our valued clients, but in addition to our charitable donations, AWOL staffer Chloe is on a personal fundraising mission, having set herself the challenge of running 100 competitive kilometers before her next birthday in June 2016.

For those of you who already know Chloe, she manages our permanent desk as well as day to day operations of the AWOL Relief Team, she’s been working with AWOL full time for the last 9 months and is familiar with many of you having been a part of the family business at various points in her career over the last 10 years. She’s not what you’d call a natural athlete and although she’s a keen amateur cyclist, running is new territory she’s hoping to conquer in her own inevitable style.

Her race list includes 3 10km races, 2 half marathons and a full marathon, she’s also waiting to hear from Cancer Research UK about a place for the London Marathon 2016 as an added extra which will take her year total to 145 competitive kilometres.
