Clinical Professionals Raise Over £250 for Walk the Walk
The Clinical Professionals Group, Europe’s leading independent pharmaceutical recruitment company, yesterday raised over £250 for Walk the Walk.
Walk the Walk is a grant making charity that was started in 1996 to support people with breast cancer and support research into the disease.
The charity specifically aims to support projects that would normally struggle to obtain funding, allowing researchers to learn more about the causes and improve the current treatments for breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with one in eight women being diagnosed in their lifetime. However, due to advances in research, treatment and earlier diagnosis, more people are now surviving breast cancer and living longer.
The day’s fundraising event involved employees donating a minimum of £1 to dress as a superhero for the day or being fined £4 if they didn’t! Throughout the day employees competed in teams against each other to be the top performing team of the day. Cakes were also made and sold for 50p each, members of Clinical Professionals’ team made personal donations, and the company matched all funds raised.
Yvette Cleland, The Clinical Professionals Group CEO, commented:
“One of our team had a partner doing the Moon Walk and we wished to further support her efforts in fundraising. Clinical Professionals runs charity days throughout the year, raising funds for both local and national charities selected by our internal teams. This was a great day of fun for the whole business with an excellent outcome for Walk the Walk and internal teamwork in fundraising. Breast cancer charities are of great personal interest to me having lost friends to this awful disease, it was a superb day.”
