New Leaf Search goes extra 13.1 miles for Cancer Research

After speculating on challenges that include shaving heads, sky diving and desert trekking, the New Leaf team considered Octobers half marathon event at the Royal Parks a suitable venture. A spokesperson for the company said choosing Cancer Research was an easy decision as the work conducted by the charity is close to New Leafs heart.

A team from asset finance recruitment firm New Leaf Search will run a half-marathon in aid of Cancer Research UK next month.

New Leaf decided earlier in the year to organise a team event to raise money for charity and found choosing which charity was an easy decision, the firm said.

A spokesperson for the New Leaf Search team said: “Each of us have loved ones that are or have been affected by cancer – so the work conducted by Cancer Research UK is close to our hearts and an ideal fundraising choice.”

A harder decision came when choosing which event, with the team ruling out head shaving, sky diving and desert trekking, before deciding to take part in October’s half marathon event in London’s Royal Parks.

As none of the team has ran a significant distance in an organised race before, the spokesperson described the event as a “tough ask” for the group but said the New Leaf runners had been training hard several times a week and are motivated by raising money for their chosen charity.

All donations will be “gratefully received” and can be given via the Virgin money giving website.
