Each year, the employees in RiverStone’s UK companies choose a charity to support with their fund-raising activities. This year we have chosen Macmillan Cancer Support. From its early beginnings in 1911, Macmillan Cancer Support has grown to become the largest cancer care and support charity in the UK. They provide nurses and therapists to help cancer suffers through treatment, advisers to tell them which benefits they’re entitled to, volunteers to give them a hand with the everyday things and campaigners to push for better cancer care. Please help us raise funds for Macmillan to continue to make this possible.
On Friday 20 September 4 teams from RiverStone will be walking, running, cycling, swimming and rowing as far as they can to raise money for Macmillan. There are 19 members of my team, (which given our location on the 2 floor of our office in Brighton we’ve named “Second’s Out”) and between us we will be completing a massive 28 mile walk, cycling 84 miles, running 42 miles, swimming 8,500 metres (that’s 350 lengths of a pool) and finally also rowing 22,000 metres - all in a day! Then at the end of that challenge we will combine the efforts of the other three RiverStone teams and compare our fundraising efforts against our colleagues in RiverStone’s US office who are also completing various sports to raise money on the same day.
Please help us to reach our target (and beat the other three teams) by donating through our JustGiving page.

One in three of us will get cancer and it’s the toughest fight most of us will ever face. By joining Team Macmillan in this fundraising event you're helping support people and their families living with cancer.So please dig deep and donate now.
