Eighteen recruiters will take part in the AJ Bell London Triathlon, alongside 11,000 athletes in the world’s largest triathlon this Sunday 22 July, in aid of Race Against Blood Cancer.
Two of the recruiters who will be swimming, biking and running in the event are Adrian O’Connor, Founding Director of financial recruitment specialist, Global Accounting Network, and Ben Westwood, Director, Hoxton Circle and a Director of Race Against Blood Cancer. This is their fourth triathlon and the second on behalf of this charity.
Race Against Blood Cancer work on behalf of patients such as Tommy Simpson, a 4-year old boy of white British and black Caribbean heritage who was diagnosed in January 2016 with acute myeloid leukaemia. Tommy, successfully found a match earlier this year, and it’s success stories like his that demonstrate why it’s so important to make a donation, large or small.
Adrian O’Connor commented:
“I can’t wait to get stuck into my fourth triathlon. We’re all trying to raise funds to help recruit more donors for cancer patients such as Tommy whose last hope is a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.”
“This is an amazing team effort and it’s impossible to single one person out – everyone is helping to get us over the line to reach our target of raising £10,000 for Race Against Blood Cancer. Last year we raised £9,000 so we hope to smash our target this year.”
“With heart-breaking stories such as that of Tommy Simpson (#Match4Tommy) at the forefront of everyone’s mind, please help us by giving generously. We will also be on site taking swabs and looking for matches, so please come down to the RABC tent”
