Well, it is for Rhia McGrady, one of the Business Analysts at Data Interconnect. In order to raise £2000 for Cancer Research, this year Rhia has decided to run a variety of 5k-13k Obstacle courses and fun runs. To aid fundraising efforts further and not so good for the DI waistline, as a chef in a previous life, Rhia is holding several bake sales.
Rhia has several close friends and family currently fighting a battle with cancer so she wanted to do something to help. Supporting Cancer Research means she can do just that, the charity is constantly researching new treatments towards finding a cure.
Now for most people, these runs are relatively easy. For Rhia, it is a lot more difficult because she has joint hypermobility.
Rhia says “It’s extremely easy for me to get injured just by the running let alone with the obstacles in the way but I wanted that challenge, something that is very difficult for me to achieve. I am determined to reach my goal because this to me represents the battle that Cancer survivors, fighters and angels have gone through themselves. I am more determined than ever!
Data Interconnect fully supports Rhia’s efforts to raise funds for this important charity.
