National estate agency Connells is delighted to announce that a team of colleagues took on the annual MK Autumn Run on Saturday 28th September at the Milton Keynes Bowl, raising money for its chosen charity, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
This year, the event organiser Big Cow teamed up with renowned music company Marshall to make it a day to remember with live bands, music, food stalls, a bar and more. There was also a brand new course for the races taking in some of the best sights of Milton Keynes including the National Bowl, Furzton Lake, Howe Park Wood and the historical St Giles church, before finishing off running back through the scenic Emerson Valley linear park.
The event was a great success and saw individuals from across the business come together to take on the Family Fun Run, 10k and half marathon.
“Connells has been partnered with the NSPCC for over 16 years now, and we love to find new and fun ways to support them and the fantastic work that they do,” says Area Partner for Connells in Milton Keynes and Northampton Stewart Caldwell-Smith. “The MK Autumn Run was a great day of events, live music, celebrations and of course, some friendly yet fierce competition!
“Many colleagues taking on the challenge were facing their first ever 10k’s and half marathons, and I would like to say a huge well done to all those that took part and gave it their all for the cause, as well as a big thank you to all that sponsored us.”
The NSPCC is the UK’s leading charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. The charity runs a range of locally based services for children and families; campaigns to help change and improve the lives of children; runs a helpline for adults to call if they are concerned about a child; and provides ChildLine, the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people to call if they need help or advice.
