Comic Relief 5k Fun Run at Milton Park Raises Over £1,200!

Published on: 21/03/2019

On Friday 15 March, people from across the many businesses located at Milton Park joined MEPC for a Science themed fun run the Park in support of the nation’s efforts to raise money for Comic Relief. The Science theme was also inspired by British Science Week.

Thanks to businesses and individuals coming together from across the Park, MEPC is
delighted to reveal that collectively everyone has raised over £1,200 for the charity with
MEPC adding to the total to bring it up to £2,000.


The route, which started on Park Drive outside the Innovation Centre, then continued
round the entirety of the park before finishing at the start line. Participants all received a
goody bag as a thank you for taking part, and prizes were given out to the fastest man
and woman.


Among the participants was Philip Campbell, Commercial Director at MEPC, who
managed to complete the run despite only returning from MIPIM that morning.
Philip Campbell, Commercial Director at MEPC, said: “We’re delighted to have
brought Comic Relief back to Milton Park. This fun event during British Science Week
was made possible with the help of the organisers and all the runners who withstood the
blustery conditions! And raised a fantastic amount for Comic Relief.


“The charity carries out some exceptional work not only here in the UK but also across
the world, and we are thrilled to be able to support them in this way.”


The money raised by the public through Comic Relief is used to tackle critical issues
affecting people across the UK and the rest of the world.
