Horsham, West Sussex - SAS Global Communications, an international provider of managed and professional network services, has announced that its senior management team (SMT) will take part in the Regent’s Park 10k run on 3 July 2010 in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA). The managed services specialist hopes to generate more than £1500 to help support people living with MND, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones.
The run is the latest event to form part of the SAS World Free Project UK, a 12-month programme of fundraising activities for the MNDA, put together to mark the company’s 21st anniversary in 2010. Taking part on the day will be SAS, Stephen Stanway; CEO, Charles Davis; COO, Nicholas Cothill; CFO, David Biggins; CSD, Mike Stichbury; and CVO, Alex Stott.
The run sets off at 9.00am on Saturday 3 July from The Hub, a new sports and cafe facility next to the sports fields in Regent’s Park, London.
Commenting on the company’s decision to take part in the event, CEO Charles Davis said:
“None of the SAS SMT members are anywhere close to what you might call athletic; we’re all over 15 stone and some of us much higher than that, so we decided it was time to change our wicked ways and, at the same time, benefit a great cause.
