Holding Redlich running team raises $17,000 for cancer research

17 September 19 - Media Release

A team of 43 from Holding Redlich’s Sydney office have raised more than $17,000 for cancer research following a charity run across Sydney’s harbour bridge.

The team took part in the 2019 Blackmores Running Festival, completing the 10 kilometre course that finished at the Opera House, in support of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF).

Holding Redlich senior associate Ashleigh Mills, who coordinated the team’s efforts, said: “It was a great success. The weather was perfect and you could feel a real sense of team spirit among the group.”

In the lead up to race day, a series of training and fundraising events were organised, including a morning tea presentation to Holding Redlich’s Sydney office by the ACRF to launch the campaign, setting up a morning ‘run club’ to help the team train ahead of the big day, a running clinic with Athletics Australia coach Jim Owens, and a Friday pizza night fundraising event.

Sydney managing partner Stephen Trew, who also took part in the event, said he was very proud of the team’s efforts and the impressive amount that has been raised.

“This has proven to be a very successful team effort with a substantial amount raised for a wonderful cause,” Stephen said.

“Overall, the Australian Cancer Research Foundation ended up as the seventh top charity in terms of total funds raised, and Holding Redlich finished as the sixth highest fundraising ‘team’ across the entire Sydney Running Festival. This is an amazing achievement.”
