On Sunday 12 July 2015, the British 10k London Run will be staged on the world’s greatest road race route through the heart of central London. The 15th Anniversary run will showcase a new route, taking in even more of London’s iconic and truly world-class landmarks and streets.
Securitas is delighted to be involved in this fantastic event in more ways than one. Not only will the global security giant be providing over 200 stewards to ensure that the event is a safe and enjoyable one for competitors and spectators alike, but a team of dedicated employees will also be taking part.
This year, the Securitas running team has chosen to raise funding for the national charity Embrace. The charity works tirelessly throughout the UK to support those children affected by serious crime through its range of practical, emotional and specialist services. Its excellent work involves children and young people who have suffered directly from abuse and child cruelty.
Anne Campbell, CEO at Embrace said: “We’re delighted the Securitas team will be donning our colours and running to help young victims of crime. All-too-often we see the devastating effects of crime on our younger members of society and we’re determined to do everything we possibly can to help them on the road to recovery – whatever that may take.”
As a company, Securitas’ mission is to ‘protect homes, workplaces and the community’ and it’s through this passion and dedication that the business has committed to paying the application fee for any Securitas employee wishing to join the running team.
Securitas Country President Brian Riis Nielsen explained: “I’m really proud to take part and to support Embrace, one of Securitas’ chosen national charities. It’s through coming together that we will really begin to make an impact on the children of Embrace and the wider communities.”
