A trio of colleagues from Zehnder UK are set to take on the ‘Race to the King Ultra-marathon’ to raise money for Dementia UK next month.
On 19 June, financial controller Matt Bartlett, CRM manager Ryan Dick and CRM co-ordinator Carlene South, aka the Zehnder ‘RAD Runners’ will take on what equates to two marathons in one day, having never attempted a marathon before.
The journey of 53.6 miles starts near Arundel in West Sussex and finishes on the steps of Winchester Cathedral – one of the most historically significant buildings in Britain and the claimed burial ground of 12 English Kings.
The team will be adhering to COVID-19 safety guidelines as they make their way over the South Downs.
Aiming to raise £500 for Dementia UK, ‘Team Zehnder’ has already raised 50 per cent of their target with three weeks still to go. Anyone who wishes to donate to their efforts and a brilliant UK charity can visit the RAD Runners' Just Giving page.
There are more than 850,000 people in the UK with dementia and team members have seen the impact first hand.
