Calling all the ladies (and men)!

At GSR HQ we have noticed (as many of you folks probably have to) the campaign by Cancer Research’s Race for Life event to drum up participants. It’s a real shame that such a worthy event, and some other races in general, are struggling to get participants when they do so much for so many people.

While the GSR isn’t just about fundraising, helping charities has always been and always will be a big part of why we are here. As many of you will know, our event raises in excess of £1.5m for charities each year thanks to the blood, sweat and (sometimes!) tears of our entrants. This year alone thousands have already signed up and committed to run for various charities – from over 300 Bank of Scotland colleagues running for Save the Children to several hundred individual British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research, Erskine Hospital, Cystic Fibrosis, Macmillan and Yorkhill Hospital, and hundreds of other smaller but no less important charities.

Taking part in the GSR is a fantastic way to do your bit for good causes close to your heart. So if you’ve always thought about doing something but never got round to it, or have seen the recent Cancer Research adverts and think this June is a bit too soon, maybe the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run is just the challenge for you…
