Employees from local law firm Mills Selig will be tackling both the London and Belfast marathons in the coming weeks in aid of their chosen charity, Dementia NI.
First up, Communications and Marketing executive John Quinn will join 40,000 runners from around the world to take on the iconic London Marathon on Sunday 23 April. Then a week later on Sunday 30 April, the Mills Selig Marathon relay team will be going for local glory as they test themselves at Belfast Marathon.
"We are thrilled to be supporting such a worthwhile cause in Dementia NI," said Maeve Fisher, Partner within Mills Selig’s Litigation team and Head of the firm’s Charity Committee, "Our entire team is passionate about making a positive impact in the world and we are excited to use this opportunity to raise funds and awareness for such an important cause - thank you to everyone able to donate to this hugely worthwhile cause.”
