Today we’d like to recognise the fabulous David Slater, who is undertaking a mammoth challenge to run 10k EVERY DAY for 10 weeks to raise funds for Candlelighters and Mind, hoping to raise an epic £10,000 to split between both charities!
 
David, Chief Operating Officer at The Property Buying Company, aptly began his challenge on 10th March and is currently around halfway through. TPBC have been avidly promoting his challenge and he’s been keeping everyone updated on social media at Running With David too, and so far has already raised over £3,500! 
 
David said, ‘The reason I’m running for Candlelighters is because I had a close friend lose their daughter to childhood cancer a few years back.’ 
 
‘But I would like to point out that this challenge is designed to inspire positivity. So, instead of looking back, I’ll be looking straight forward, fresh air in my lungs, spurred on by an open mind. The only time I will look back is when I cross the finishing line, hopefully with £10k to split between the two causes.’ 
 
We’d like to wish David all the best for the rest of his amazing challenge and hope you will join us! Already the money he has raised will make a huge difference to our support and research and we are so grateful. David, we think you are an inspiration – keep going!
