A team of 12 staff from Cod Beck Blenders, based in Thirsk, took part in the 2018 Jane Tomlinson’s Run for All Marathon corporate relay in York.

The team of people from across the business raised funds for the Sporting Memories Foundation, to help support our volunteers working with older people to tackle dementia, depression and loneliness.

The two Cod Beck Blenders Teams achieved a combined target of £3,000.

As a charity we will provide support to anyone willing to help us raise money to support our work, by providing running vests and by helping provide publicity to help increase donations.

The 26.2 mile marathon, sponsored by Welcome to Yorkshire, took place in York on October 14th. Teams of six completed the distance between them in relay.

Managing director of Cod Beck Blenders, Steve Meyer, said: “I got the idea from my wife who works for another local business and was entering a team for them and, as Cod Beck Blenders is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, it seemed particularly fitting.

“The response from the Cod Beck crew was so positive that we ended up entering two teams”

“We have a mix of regular runners and complete novices, so training has been fun and it’s been a great teambuilding exercise. Individually, we know that none of us could take on a marathon, but together you can do anything”.

“Many thanks to everyone who has supported us in raising money for this fantastic charity”
