E3 Recruitment complete the Leeds 10k for charity
E3 Recruitment ran the Leeds 10K Corporate Challenge on Sunday 10th July for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund which supports the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit at the Leeds General Infirmary. Nine team members took part and completed the race and have so far raised £1,270 for the charity.
The charity is close to E3 Recruitment as two of the team’s children were born with heart conditions and thanks to the care and support provided by Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, can now lead normal lives.
The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund has already provided millions of pounds worth of funding to the Unit which has provided cutting edge equipment, ward facilities, staff positions & training, family accommodation & support and research posts & projects. All this additional funding ensures the Unit can remain open following previous reviews to reduce the number of hospitals carrying out children’s heart surgery due to funding. If this was to happen families in the region would have to travel to Bristol or Newcastle for appointments.
The charity is now raising funds for a revolutionary children’s heart theatre, based at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, which will reduce surgery wait times and provide better equipment for more complex operations.
Andrew Joseph, Owner and Business Partner at E3 Recruitment, who was the run organiser from E3R said:
“Our aim was to raise awareness and money for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, a charity which is close to E3R as two of our Consultants are involved with the charity and it has had a positive effect on their lives. The E3 team all completed the race on Sunday even though it was very warm and we even had an ankle injury in the team at the 1k mark, but regardless he completed the 10k walking.”
