Securitas supports London 10K Run on two fronts

17 March 2015

On Sunday 12 July 2015, the British 10k London Run will be staged on the world’s greatest road race route through the heart of central London. The 15th anniversary run will showcase a new route, taking in even more of London’s iconic and truly world-class landmarks and streets.

Securitas is delighted to be involved in this fantastic event in more ways than one. Not only will we be providing over 200 stewards to play our part in making sure the event is a safe and enjoyable one for competitors and spectators alike, but if you keep your eyes peeled you may spot one of the many Securitas employees taking part. Be sure to keep track of the teams progress using #RunToEmbrace.

This year the Securitas running team have chosen to raise funding for the national charity, Embrace. The charity works tirelessly throughout the UK to support children after serious crime through its range of practical, emotional and specialist services. Their work involves children and young people who have suffered directly from abuse and child cruelty.

Anne Campbell, Chief Executive from Embrace commented; “We’re delighted that the Securitas team will be donning our colours and running to help young victims of crime. We see all too often the devastating effects of crime on our younger members of society and are determined to do everything we possibly can to help them on the road to recovery - whatever that may take.”

Throughout the Securitas world, our mission is to ‘protect homes, workplaces and the community’. It is through this passion and dedication that Securitas have committed to paying the application fee for any Securitas employee wishing to join the Securitas running team.

Securitas Country President, Brian Riis Nielsen explains: “I’m really proud to take part and to support Embrace, one of Securitas’ chosen national charities. It is through coming together that we will really begin to make an impact to the children of Embrace, and the wider communities.”

Good luck to Brian and the rest of the team, and let’s keep our fingers crossed for some good weather on the day.
