Clive Owen Team share personal stories as they prepare to take on Race For Life

Clive Owen Team share personal stories as they prepare to take on Race For Life | Darlington Business Club

A number of staff from Clive Owen LLP are swapping calculators for running shoes to take part in the Darlington Race for Life to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Over the past 20 years, more than 8 million people have taken part in the Race for Life events across the country, raising over £547 million to fund the charity’s life-saving work. 

The Clive Owen team has set a target to raise at least £2,000.  Many members of the team have a personal reason for supporting Cancer Research and completing the event, particularly after the recent diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer of a valued colleague.

Alison Welch, tax director, said: “My Mum was first diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 50.  She has fought this awful disease very bravely for over 30 years but the treatments that she has had have severely impacted her quality of life.  She continues to fight.  I am raising money for cancer research through the race for life to contribute to them finding better and kinder treatment for this terrible disease.” 

 

Lauren Davies, trainee chartered accountant, said: “I’m doing it for my Auntie Gwen.  She’s not my real auntie, she’s my nana’s sister but that’s what I’ve always called her. She wasn’t around for most of my life as she lived in Galveston, Texas but she visited once or twice when I was really young.
