Tom and Su are Running for Wildlife

Tom and SuOur two staff members who are doing the Great Birmingham Run

Two of our staff members are doing the Great Birmingham Run on October 20th in aid of The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country.

Tom Hartland-Smith and Su James have taken the bold decision to take on the challenge of running 13.1 miles to raise money for us.

Tom, who works as People and Wildlife Officer, and Su, who is our Nature Improvement Area Project Officer, will be joining thousands of others in The Bupa Great Birmingham Run, which is the biggest half marathon in the Midlands and now in its third year.

The course takes in some of the city's most iconic sights including the Bullring, the Cadbury's factory in Bournville and Edgbaston cricket ground, as well as some nice green sites, but our runners will mainly be focussed on trying to get round.

Donations can be made on their page on Everyclick and we are hopeful that they will quickly reach a big total to reward their efforts and raise vital money for our work protecting wildlife here in Birmingham and the Black Country.

Please give generously and you could also run it for us yourself if you fancy the challenge. You can enter on the Great Run website and either set up your own page on everyclick or contact us for help in doing it via info@bbcwildlife.org.uk

We also hope to have people out in force cheering our runners to the finish on October 20th, so do join us there.
