HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO NYREE!
The Source team are today tipping their caps to their colleague, Nyree, who completed a unique marathon over the weekend. You can too show your support by Sponsoring Nyree now!
The event was the famous Moonwalk whereby thousands of people, mainly women, walk the 26.2 miles in London through the night dressed in customized bras to raise awareness for charity.
Nyree, who looks after the invoicing and administration at Source, was part of a team of 7 ladies called Nix Chix who stuck together for the entire 9 hours on Saturday night raising big bucks for Walk the Walk – Uniting Against Breast Cancer.
Describing the pain as ‘horrendous’, Nyree kept the reason for walking at the forefront of her mind to remain positive;
‘We were on our feet for 5 hours even before we started then it took 5 hours to do 13 miles so we knew we were in for a long haul. It was horrendous but worth every step. The only thing keeping us going was the reason – raising money and paying tribute to those who have suffered. I walked with people of all ages who were just finishing treatment for breast cancer as well as families who were walking in the memory of a mum/daughter/sister/aunt/grandma who they had lost. It was a very emotional experience!’
Sponsor Nyree – you know it makes sense.
Much respect to our colleague and we’re all proud of Nyree’s accomplishment!
