Staff and employees of, Ameon are to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary year by undertaking 25 fundraising challenges to raise money for the NHS and care heroes who have brought the country through the Covid.
Rather than stage a lavish bash, now that restrictions are ending, management and employees decided to dedicate the 25th anniversary to those in frontline jobs who have worked tirelessly to save lives throughout the pandemic, and they plan to use what remains of the year, after restrictions, to raise a minimum of £25,000 under an initiative they have called ‘Ameon 25’.
Ameon has agreed to match any funds raised by its employees during the execution of the 25 fundraising activities, and has guaranteed £25,000 minimum to be divided between NHS Charities and Brian House Children’s Hospice in Blackpool; although believes more will be raised.
Already in the diary are a unique triathlon event to be undertaken by Ameon’s directors; the Manchester marathon, being run by a first-timer; a fire walk, and what is being billed as the first rooftop 10K, to be run on the dedicated rooftop running track, 150 feet above the traffic in Manchester city centre, at the newly completed Vox apartment development in Cornbrook. The run is to be undertaken by Ameon’s principal commercial manager, Steve McCourt, who oversaw the completion of the company’s part of the construction contract on the building.
Ameon 25 kicks off with the rooftop 10K, in association with Vox, on Saturday 11th September, which will involve a gruelling 83 laps of the 120-metre long, two-lane track, which boasts the distraction of scenic views across the new Manchester skyline and the Pennines beyond.
