O’Donnell Solicitors is delighted to announce their support and participation in the 2019 Tour of Tameside.
Several members of team O’Donnell will participate in four-day challenge over its various stages on June 13-16, all to raise money for the firm’s chosen charity of the year – Emmaus Mossley.
Director James O’Donnell said: “This is the third year a team from O’Donnell Solicitors has taken part in the event and we’re delighted this year will see even more of us putting on our running shoes!”
James will be joined by assistant solicitor Suzzanne Gardener and PA Claire Kinder who are taking part in each of the four stages of the Tour.
Director Anthony Jones will take part in stage 1 and directors Rebecca O’Donnell and Claire Egerton the last race in Hyde, joined by PA Natalie Wright, receptionist Emma Jones and accounts manager Catherine Lees.
The Tour of Tameside, founded by marathon legend Dr Ron Hill MBE in 1983, was re-launched in 2015 and has been growing in popularity year on year.
With four events over four days, each on a different route and terrain, the Tour is designed to challenge participants both physically and mentally, while still offering something for runners of all abilities.
Participants and teams are encouraged to raise money for local causes, and any profits from the event are donated back into the local community.
James added: “We all lead busy and stressful lives but as a firm we believe physical activity such as running can really help to relieve this.
“In addition, running alongside each other, spurring each other on during both training sessions and events themselves, has proven to be extremely rewarding and enjoyable.
“All of our team live and work in the local area and so it is great to be able to participate in event that celebrates the outstanding beauty around us while also giving back to those in need.”
Emmaus Mossley supports 26 formerly homeless people by providing them with a home and work in a community setting. To find out more or support Emmaus Mossley head online: www.emmaus.org.uk/mossley
