Shield’s Bristol Half Marathon Success
Wednesday 1st October 2014
On the 21st of September Shield completed the Bristol Half Marathon race with no serious casualties. Shield entered 22 people split up into 5 teams into the race to raise money for the St Peter’s Hospice in Bristol, which provides support to local adults who have life-limiting illnesses. Currently Shield has raised £1,415 through the Just Giving website with more donations to be collected from the people who entered the race and their sponsors, so we are hopeful of still hitting our £2,000 target we initially set for ourselves.
Our fastest runners were Will Rundle who completed the race in an impressive 1:50:41, Darren Sheppard with 1:55:54 and a joint 3rd with Amber Thomas and Justin Edwards finishing in 2:05:36.
After the race the Shield team got together to celebrate their achievement and the funds raised for the St Peter’s Hospice at a venue in Bristol. If you have not donated yet there is still time to contribute to our cause, your donations are greatly appreciated, please follow https://www.justgiving.com/TeamShield/ to donate.
