A team of runners from the Comley Group are taking on the challenge of the 10 mile Great South Run this October, in memory of the late MD, Richard Comley.
Michael Wells, Clifford Pitman, Billy Rogers, Mark Watkins, Carl Warner, Kamila Dziedzic, Richard's son and current MD, Toby Comley and Richard's daughter, Jen Atkinson will all be pounding the pavements of Portsmouth on 25th October. The team all work for the Comley Group, either as sub-contractors or as part of the crew from Comley Demolition, Comley Reclaim and Jeto Limited.
They are raising money for BRIGHT Cancer Research, a charity that raises funds for vital research and new treatment options for gastro-intestinal cancer patients.
Richard Comley was diagnosed with stomach cancer in 2012, and he continued to work every day through numerous chemotherapy treatments, always with a smile and his trademark stoicism. He never let the disease affect his work or the important friendships he had developed with many of his colleagues.
He passed away in June 2013 at the age of 56, and remians an inspiration to both his family and many of his former colleagues.
Help us raise money for a great cause, and all in memory of Richard.
Many of the team are taking on this challenge for the first time, and with plenty of training and hard work, it will be a huge achievement for all of them when they cross that finish line after 10 miles!
Good luck guys!
