Belfast staff putting their best foot forward for charity at Belfast Marathon

Runners and walkers raising funds for the Community Rescue Service

Members of staff from our Belfast branch are putting their best foot forward for the Community Rescue Service (CRS) when they take part in this year’s Belfast Marathon on Sunday 5th May.

A total of 16 staff will be taking part, with 10 running the Marathon Relay while the rest of the staff members will complete the 9 Mile Walk.

This year’s new and improved Belfast Marathon route will start at 9am from Stormont Buildings and will make its way around the city before finishing in Ormeau Park.

The chosen charity, the Community Rescue Service, is a charitable search and rescue organisation operated by volunteers from communities across Northern Ireland. They are the only accredited Lowland Rescue search and rescue organisation in N Ireland and hold full membership of the Association of Lowland Search and Rescue (ALSAR).

Providing all aspects of search and rescue falling under the remit of Lowland Rescue including ground, inland water, bike, boat and more, the Community Rescue Service has been involved in some high-profile searches over recent years and was recently featured in the BBC One NI programme The Search to help raise the profile of the work the charity carries out.

As a group we are aiming to reach a target of £800 and we would appreciate as much support as possible to get behind us. Please follow the link to make a donation - DONATE NOW
