On September 26th, topclick will be taking part in the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon, running 13.1 miles for charity. Our Managing Director Miles Cottrell and Accounts Director Kevin Lopez will be joined by friends Ben Price and Alex Morgan. They were keen to set themselves the challenge and thought it was the perfect opportunity to support a local charity, Woking & Sam Beare Hospice, in the process.
Woking & Sam Beare Hospice is a charity that delivers specialist palliative care to adult patients of all ages who have life-limiting and terminal illnesses in the North West Surrey region, providing free of charge holistic care and support services both in their hospice and in homes.
This hospice is a cause close to Kevin’s family as it cared for his father-in-law Derek, who stayed there during his illness with cancer. The nurses, carers and support staff were amazing during such a tough time. Kevin will be running in his memory.
The incredible staff team also made Miles’ mother-in-law, Christine, comfortable and peaceful in her final moments following a difficult battle with cancer. His late wife Michelle was very grateful for their compassion and kindness. He will be running in memory of his late wife Michelle, his son Oscar, and mother-in-law Christine. Miles commented the following in regards to the upcoming marathon: “My last marathon was 10 years ago, and I’m really excited to be challenging myself again with this 13.1 mile run! It’s also the perfect opportunity to support a charity that does such fantastic work.”
