Suzanne’s Great North Run

Customer Services manager Suzanne Cain of Plum Communications has completed the Great North Run to raise money for Leukaemia Care. She raised £300 in personal sponsors and Plum will be doubling this to make a total raised of £600 for the charity. Suzanne completed the 13.1 miles half marathon in 2 hours 2 minutes, which included two stops to allow ambulances to pass whilst husband Martin who was also running to raise money for charity completed the run in 1 hours 22 minutes. It is the third time that Suzanne has taken part in the Great North Run and she beat her previous time of 2 hours 22 minutes.

Suzanne said “It was fantastic, the atmosphere was outstanding and being there was an amazing experience. I was a little disappointed not to have finished in under two hours but the delay was unavoidable and I have already booked for next year. “It was a very emotional time especially reading the stories on other people’s T-shirts of their reasons for running. Throughout the day there was entertainment from bands and even a fly over by the Red Arrows which all helped to make it a special day to remember.”

Peter Savic of Plum said “We are very proud of Suzanne and Martin and we were delighted to back her and provide sponsorship for her chosen charity. It is a pleasure to be able to support her and raise funds for such a worthy cause.”

Anyone would like to add to the sponsorship total can contact Suzanne at Plum on 0161 622 3500.
