Ed, who looks after accounts payable in the Ciret office, has been a supporter of the Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association for many years.
“I’m running the Great South Run this year for the 8th time. I ran for PDS in 2017 as I saw the great work you were doing to help the family of my friend Tim and his son.
(continued) My dad was a very keen runner and he inspired me to get into running and for a few years we both ran the Great South Run together. Sadly, he died in January 2015 due to a cardiac arrest whilst out running. Whenever I run he is always on my mind, so this year I will be running in his memory and also to raise as much money as possible for this amazing charity.”
We are very pleased to support Ed in what will be a great achievement.
He will be running a total of 10 miles around the city of Portsmouth & Southsea.
As of today, Ed has maximised on his target of £150 to £400.
