On 6 March 2011, 23 members of the Autologic Diagnostics team took part in the Adidas Half-Marathon at Silverstone. Decked out in BEN t-shirts, for some the 13.1 miles was a relatively easy feat and for others more of a hard slog, but every Autologic runner successfully crossed the finish line to raise much needed funds for BEN.
Ian Jones, Autologic Technical Director, said
"Belonging to the motor industry ourselves, we know the work and support BEN offers to those involved in the automotive trade is important and can often be a vital lifeline. Therefore as a business, we really wanted to do something to show our support for BEN and our fellow industry professionals.
It was great to see so many of our staff rise to the occasion and take part in this half marathon. Everyone involved did extremely well and should rightly feel proud of their personal achievement as well as their fundraising effort."
So far Autologic have raised over £1,500 and anyone wishing to make a donation can still do so at www.justgiving.com/autologic-diagnostics-ltd
