To celebrate the festive season, Kieran Bailey and I from the GRC team are doing a 10K run at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to raise funds for the Malaria Consortium, an organization that combats malaria, which kills 600,000 people annually, mostly children under 5, by distributing preventative antimalarial drugs to young children during times of peak transmission.
We encourage you to either join us for the run or donate to this fundraiser. To get us to a good start, I’ve already committed £200 to this fundraiser!
Remember, it costs only $7 (equivalent to £5.57) to protect 1 child from malaria, so every penny counts!
If you’re interested in joining the run or have any questions about the charity or the fundraiser, please feel free to drop Kieran or myself an email!
Sarmad and Kieran are consultants in the financial services advisory team at BDO UK. They’re excited to help raise funds for the Malaria Consortium!
