Helix races for children?s charities

A group of Helix colleagues and friends took part in the 7th annual JLL Property 5k in Regent?s Park.

The 7th annual JLL Property 5k was held on Thursday 27th August in Regent’s Park, with more than 1,000 property people taking part, including team Helix – a group of 21 Helix colleagues and our friends.

What a great event it was! The Helix team performed spectacularly, despite the best efforts of the British summer weather trying to put us off! And we have to single out Helix team member Graham Foster who came twelfth overall, completing the race in just 18 minutes and 10 seconds!

The overall event’s registration fees alone raised a whopping £20,000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, which grants wishes to terminally ill children, entertaining over half a million children every year in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.

The Helix team was also racing for 4 year old Michael Davey who is part of the Helix family. If you will, please take a moment to read his story. And if you’d like to make any contribution towards Michael’s future please use the links on the website.

We are told that this annual race, fantastically organised by JLL, is great for targeting a personal best, so we hope this year’s Helix team and many others will join us next year to beat their best and raise more funds for such worthy causes.
