Leading the way in supporting the local community and the NHS, Milton Keynes-based healthcare recruiter ID Medical is calling its employees, candidates and clients to join its Milton Keynes Half Marathon running team to raise funds for the designated charities of Milton Keynes General Hospital as well as Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
On 9th March 2014, ID Medical employees, staff at the two hospitals plus doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who have worked at these Trusts through ID Medical, will join together at the marathon starting line at the Xscape venue to run 13 miles through the city centre.
Caryn Cooper, head of marketing and CSR ambassador at ID Medical comments, “Milton Keynes General Hospital and Luton and Dunstable University Hospital are two valued clients and we are getting involved in the Half Marathon to help make the difference to both the NHS and our community.
This close to home initiative presents a fantastic opportunity for us to underpin further our working relationships with the Trusts and our working candidates whilst launching ID Medical’s fundraising programme 2014. Part of our CSR aim is to help give back. We identified this opportunity to become integral to the MK Half Marathon as an achievable multi-participant, fun and healthy approach to our CSR mission and related slogan – ‘Together we will make the difference’. ”
