This year, two separate teams made up of staff from Pryers will be taking on the Great North Run and cycling Coast to Coast from Whitehaven to Tynemouth, raising funds for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA).
Through our clients, we regularly see the life changing effects of spinal cord injury. The SIA provide support, guidance and education, with the aim of empowering people with injuries to return to their previous life as much as possible. They are always there to support those injured, from day one, for the rest of their lives.Pryers are proud to name the SIA our Charity of the Year for 2015 and staff at Pryers will be pushing themselves as far as possible to complete these challenges.
The training has already begun and photos will be
uploaded along the way to keep everyone updated.
Great North Run
Both Ian Pryer and Tim Gorman, Senior Partners of Pryers, head the team of over 10, aiming to complete the 13.1 mile course in Newcastle. Some of the team are experienced runners and have finished the Great North Run before, whilst for others this will be the furthest they have ever run. All will know that this is no easy challenge.Coast to Coast
A much smaller team of cyclists will be taking on the gruelling journey from Whitehaven to Tynemouth over the August Bank Holiday weekend. The aim is to complete the 140 miles or so in just two days; a mean feat considering that the route has as much climbing as a mountain stage in the Tour de France.
We would be extremely grateful for any sponsorship and support for a very worthy cause.
