Sunday 1 May
Team Red and our wonderful supporters took to the streets of Westminster to #RunforRuth in the Vitality Mile.
As a team, we had a spectacular day and were blown away by the support, with over 200 people joining us.
The entire day was filled with smiles, enthusiasm and a whole lot of red. Ruth is always at the heart of what we do and this was a true ‘Ruth moment’ – her dream of creating better possible outcomes for families facing grief and those with non-smoking lung cancers, is now a reality.
We would like to say a massive thank you, as we managed to raise important funds for our cause. Not only that, we were able to raise more awareness of our two missions through our mission services team giving vital information on the day.
Sir Andrew spoke passionately about the Ruth Strauss Foundation on stage, at the Vitality Wellness Festival. This meant he was able to reach a wider audience, which we are very thankful for.
We were extremely grateful to have Kenzie Benali join us and she did a fabulous job at taking over our social media for the day.
Please visit our #RunforRuth ’22 highlight on Instagram to watch the incredible interviews. There are some fantastic moments, including where we heard from our Head of Mission services Deepa Doshi, Georgia Elwiss, Georgia Adams, Ian Bell along with some of our sensational supporters and volunteers!
