Two members of the PM Law team have raised more than £1,000 for a local hospice after taking part in the new-look Sheffield Half Marathon.
Harvey Harding and Nick Brimacombe completed the gruelling 13.1 mile race to raise the cash for St Luke’s Hospice which is based in Whirlow about three miles south west of Sheffield city centre.
The hospice gives Sheffield people with life-limiting illness the best possible quality of life but requires more than £4.9 million each year to keep going.
Harvey and Nick were among more than 7,500 runners who took part in the revamped half marathon which took in the more scenic side of the city this year with a challenging climb up Ecclesall Road South and then Ringinglow Road before returning to the town centre.
Despite the tough hill section and windy conditions Nick ran round in a time of 1.35, while Harvey crossed the finishing line in 1:55.
PM Law’s IT guru Mark Chamberlain was also amongst the runners and was just a few minutes off his personal best with a time of 1:37.
“It was a fantastic event for Sheffield and it was a great feeling to cross the finish line after so much support all the way round,” said Harvey.
“The crowd was incredible and we had plenty of additional support and cheers for wearing St Luke’s vests. Thank you to everyone who sponsored me.
“I’m delighted we’ve managed to raise more than £1,000. St Luke’s Hospice does amazing work for so many people in Sheffield.”
Nick added: “The revamped course presented new challenges this year but the crowd support was amazing and really spurred you on throughout.
“I’m really pleased with how much we’ve raised and glad we’ve contributed to such a worthy cause.”
The fundraising continues for Harvey as he will be running the Leeds Half Marathon on 10th May to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
