Going the distance for DKMS

6 December 2017

‘Tis the season to be jolly and the DKMS team put the ‘fun’ in fundraising during their latest running challenge.

A dedicated team made up of DKMS staff including; Anna, Annalisa, Claire, Peter and Simona went the extra mile on Sunday 3 December as they donned Santa outfits and took part in the Santa Run.

The 5k race which took place in Victoria Park saw hundreds of people dress as the big man as they ho ho ho’d to the finish line.

As well as raising awareness the challenge was an opportunity to raise vital funds to help register more potential lifesavers. So far the team has collectively raised over £1k and counting.
