Team of 5 take part in Vertical Rush, raising money for the charity, Shelter | 1 February 2011
Qube Global Software will be taking part in Vertical Rush 2011 on Thursday 3rd March, in order to raise money for the charity Shelter. A team of 5 members of staff from the company will be running this year – Andrew Phelan, Pete Ratcliffe, Chris Ridley, Dave Griffin and Krysztof Kubosz have all been working hard in both training and fundraising.
Vertical Rush is a tower running event that has attracted great excitement and media interest in London over the last few years. This year the run will take place at Tower 42 in the City of London close to Qube Global Software’s London Headquarters. Tower 42 is 920 steps and 183 metres long. From 07:30am, runners will set off in eight waves every hour and will run up 42 floors to reach Vertigo 42. The event is also a favourite within the property industry with many teams entering from organisations in the sector.
James Lavery, Head of Marketing at Qube Global Software, expresses the company’s excitement:
“We are delighted to be supporting such a great cause and our team is really excited about the challenge ahead. We would love to see the team perform really well but more than anything we hope to gain even more support for the charity”.
Qube Global Software takes part in various activities across the year to help raise money for Cancer Research, Children In Need, Sport Relief and Movember – The Prostate Cancer Charity.
Shelter is a charity that works to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing.
The organisation provides advice, information and advocacy to people in housing need and by campaigning for political change in housing policy.
