Capita employees take part in triathlon for Cancer Research UK

A team of three employees from event and booking agency Capita Travel and Events completed the Virgin Active London Triathlon on 27 July in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Swindon-based Alisdair Ross, Chris Goundrill and Rich Edwards raised £905 and finished 320th out of 485 relay teams that took part.

Chris Goundrill, Client Development Manager, swam 1.5km in the Royal Victoria Dock; Rich Edwards, Project Co-ordinator completed a 40km bike ride around the city of London; and Alisdair Ross, Head of Project and Events Support Team, ran the final 10km leg of the Triathlon from London Excel.

Caroline Silke, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Cancer Research UK, added: “We’d like to say a big thank you to the team from Capita for taking part in the triathlon for us and raising vital funds to help us beat cancer sooner.”

Over the course of a year-long partnership Capita hopes to raise £200,000 for the charity dedicated to beating cancer through research.
