Clinical Professionals’ Divisional Director Runs the Royal Park Half Marathon for Bloodwise
Suzanne Swan, Divisional Director at the Clinical Professionals Group, completed on Sunday Bloodwise’s Royal Park Half Marathon in 2hrs 11mins and 55 seconds.
We are extremely proud to announce that her efforts raised over £700 in aid of the charity, which more than doubled her initial target of £300.
Bloodwise, formerly known as Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, is a UK based charity that is dedicated to funding research into all blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. The charity also offers support and information to blood cancer patients and their families. The Clinical Professionals Group nominated Bloodwise as its corporate charity for 2017/18 so we are exceptionally proud of Suzanne’s achievement.
The charity invest money into blood cancer research with the aim of patients having their disease diagnosed as accurately and early as possible, thereby enabling them to receive personalised and targeted treatment to help maximise their chances for recovery.
Not only do we support Bloodwise as a charity and due to our direct involvement within the life science industry, but also several highly respected members of our team here have had family members affected by a form of blood cancers so this charity and the work it does has become very special to us as an organisation.
Suzanne Swan took part in the marathon to raise money on the anniversary of her mother’s diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.
