Basingstoke Half Marathon for St. Michael’s Hospice

On October 4th 2015, one of our conference operators, Dave Footer (@DavidFooter) from our Video Network Operations Centre (VNOC) in Basingstoke UK, will be once again running this year’s Basingstoke Half Marathon. He has previously run both the Basingstoke and Fleet half marathons and he’s hoping to beat his current fastest time of 1hr 49 minutes. So, the reason Dave’s running on October 4th, is to raise money for a very worthwhile local charity – St. Michael’s Hospice in Basingstoke.

He managed to raise just over £100 for St. Michael’s last year and is looking to at least double that this year! St. Michael’s provides specialist palliative care to those that are affected by life-limiting illnesses, both in the hospice and in patients’ own homes. All services provided by St. Michael’s are free of charge, so they have to rely heavily on charitable donations. Dave’s set up a Just Giving page where you can donate online to a very worthy cause.

All your friends and colleagues at Yorktel wish you lots of luck, no blisters and a good finishing time Dave!
