Morris Site Machinery’s well-travelled International Business Director, Phil Winnington, will once again pull on his running shoes to clock up the miles for his annual charity challenge.
This year Phil’s 5 a Day will see him run 5k on five consecutive days at different locations across the country in aid of Alzheimer’s Society, Morris & Company’s chosen charity for their 150th anniversary, with friends and colleagues joining in to help raise funds and awareness.
The first run, on 22 July, is a route around Morris Site Machinery’s Four Ashes base in Wolverhampton. Day two sees a park run near the Shrewsbury head office of parent group Morris & Company. The next one at its SMC production facility in Gosberton, Lincolnshire, running round a track of light towers.
The run on day four starts from the offices of the Hire Association Europe (HAE) in Birmingham with the final run, on 26 July, quite literally a home run in Congleton, Cheshire.
Phil, a member of the HAE Supply Chain Board, said: “HAE are generously supporting me again with sponsorship and members will join me running the course around the Birmingham Business Park in Solihull.
“I’m looking forward to seeing my colleagues from the various divisions of Morris taking part along with Hirers, Suppliers, and Associates all joining together for a cause that affects so many families and communities. It is the third year I have taken on the challenge and the support I receive certainly spurs me on to run and raise more each year.”
Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today. It is the chosen charity of Morris & Company which understands the ongoing need as its Morris Care division runs six nursing homes.
