Sue Mason, an inbound team leader at AMAG Technology in Tewkesbury, UK, has lost friends and family to cancer, including her mom. So when she saw an opportunity to raise funds to support research to find a cure, she started training for the Tewkesbury Half Marathon in support of Cancer Research UK.
Sue also started reaching out to family, friends and co-workers to sponsor her in the May 2017 event that attracted about 800 runners. She raised £733 ($948) in support of Cancer Research UK, and the G4S Match it! Program added an additional $500 (£387).
The G4S Match it! program supports employee community service efforts and the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility commitment. The program focuses corporate charitable giving on local community projects and good causes that are clearly supported by G4S employees. Match-it! program encourages AMAG and G4S employees to become involved in their local community by matching the money they raise for a charity, up to $500.
