The Great North Run

Published on

All of us at Mauve Group are very excited and proud to cheer on our fantastic Global Account Manager, Annette Ord, as she kicks off her training and fundraising for the Simplyhealth Great North Run half-marathon this September!

The Simplyhealth Great North Run is the largest half-marathon in the UK with 57,000 participants and will take place in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne on Sunday 10th September this year.

Annette has been a much-loved and popular part of Mauve for over 16 years, and we are all very proud to support her fundraising activities for the British Heart Foundation; a charity that is very dear to Annette and many more of us. Annette is looking to raise £1000 to fund vital research into cardiovascular disease, the UK’s single biggest killer; through the supportive actions of people like Annette, the British Heart Foundation has helped to halve the number of people dying from these diseases in the UK, but still seven million people suffer every day. If you want to help Annette reach her target and support the BHF in their fight for every heartbeat, head to her JustGiving page and click the “Donate” button. Contributions of any size will be very gratefully received and make a big difference to this worthwhile cause.

Although Annette has completed similar distances before, this is a physically-gruelling and busy race- it’s time for her to dust off her running shoes and hit the pavements as she begins a demanding training programme to ensure she is fully prepared for the day. The Mauve digital team will be checking in regularly on Annette’s training and following her journey as she builds up to the big event; be sure to check back to find out where she is in achieving her fundraising goals.

From the entire Mauve Team, we’d like to wish her huge luck on her journey to the finish line- GO ANNETTE!
