Seven Exertis directors, a project leader and three colleagues from vendor partners NETGEAR and Fujitsu have raised £21,000 for the Naomi House and Jacksplace charity by cycling 100 miles around the Isle of Wight in a single day.
Exertis HR Director Nick Foster also contributed, choosing to run a half marathon from Cowes to Ventnor instead – in 2hrs and 20 minutes.
Exertis UK Managing Director Paul Bryan said: “A challenging day, with a few bumps, cramps and sores. But most importantly we were able to raise a significant amount for a tremendously worthwhile cause. A big thank you to all the riders and sponsors that supported our event.”
Naomi House and Jacksplace are hospices for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The charity provides care to young people and their families in communities across Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire.
