ARCH to ARC run for City firm to raise vital funds for Children with Cancer UK
Six members of staff from leading consultancy Navigant will be taking part in a special relay this weekend in a bid to raise £5,000 for charity Children with Cancer UK.
The team, comprising of Maxime Girard, Sarah Cannon, Becky James, Stephanie Joslin, Ibragim Goesjenov, Joseph Mcfarland and Graeme Buller, will set off from Marble Arch, London, at 0830 BST on Friday 28th September and hope to reach the Arc de Triomphe, Paris, by 0600 local time, on Sunday 30th September.
The team will begin the relay from London in fancy dress, including Sarah Cannon as Little Miss Chatterbox, the famous children's character, regularly seen at events including the London Marathon. Each member of the team will run for one hour stints (with a four hour break to cross the Channel).
Navigant, based in Basinghall Street, EC2, is the UK advisory arm of the US listed Navigant Consulting, assists global banks, law firms and financial institutions with litigation analytics, derivative and structured product valuation and risk and regulation consulting.
Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children's charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. The charity funds life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer, and works to protect young lives through essential welfare and campaigning programmes.
Children with Cancer UK (formerly CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA) was set up in 1988 by Eddie and Marion O'Gorman after their 14 year old son Paul died from leukaemia. Just nine months later they lost their daughter Jean, also to cancer.
