Mohammad Faisal, Service Lead for a CareTech Supported Living Service took part in the Love Luton 10k Run on 27th October 2019, raising money for Keech Hospice Care.
The event was Love Luton’s 7th half marathon and 10k race, and was attended by a record number of runners, hitting just under 1,300. The Love Luton event is supported and part funded by over 25 local business, and the race day was supported by over 150 volunteers.
Mohammad raised £105 on the day. He took part in the event, for a number of reasons, firstly because he enjoys running and taking on challenges, such as to accomplish a 10k run. Additionally, the event is a huge success for the town, which brings in much needed spend from the record number of entries, boosting the local economy. The event also promotes a healthy image and encourages people to sign up to participate in a local sporting event and inspire our next generation. But most importantly, runners also raise much-needed fund for local charities.
Mohammad chose Keech Hospice Care as they provide vital support and care to adults and children who are terminally ill. They mainly rely on people’s generous support to be able to operate and support vulnerable people and to ensure dignified end of life care and support.
After the event Mohammad said:
“It was great to be part of this event as so many people from diverse communities came together, which effectively promotes community cohesion, unity and diversity. This event also hugely boosts the local economy and raises funds of local charities. This event also encourages people to enjoy an active life style and meet the personal challenges. I personally enjoyed the event.”
The Foundation was pleased to support Keech Hospice Care and Mohammad with a match fund of £105.
