Peak Retreats Great South Run for Brain Tumour Research

November 20, 2018

14 of the Peak Retreats team signed up to the Great South Run, a 10-mile challenge, in memory of their colleague Valerie Fouger, who passed away in 2013 at the age of just 31 of a brain tumour. So on Sunday 21 October, we donned our ski goggles, which were donated by those kind folks over at PANDA Optics, and headed to the start line...

 

Our team - Alison, Claire, Charlotte, Sarah, Marie-Anne, Lyndsey, Tim, Marie-Laure, Marie-Sophie, Molly, Chris and Steve - who are part of our reservations, marketing and product departments were joined by Emilie and company founder Nathalie who are both based in France and travelled over especially for the event.

We all had the best time! The sun was shining and the crowds loved seeing us run in our PANDA Optics ski goggles and, after seeing is on the Channel 5 coverage that morning, cheered us on with gusto as we ran past. 

Here are some photos from the day...
