Larcomes taking part in 5K May raising funds for HASAG Asbestos Disease Support

Last Summer, the #Run5Donate5Nominate5 running challenge went viral, with members of the public running 5K, donating £5 and then nominating a further 5 friends to take on the trend. This social media sensation raised £7million for the NHS COVID-19 appeal through mobilising 1.5 million participants, 71% of which were under 34. The charity Run for Heroes were the creators behind the challenge and now they’re back with a new virtual challenge, 5K May, and Larcomes are taking part, raising much needed funds for HASAG Asbestos Disease Support

What is 5K May?

Led by a social media campaign and promoted through press and media announcements, the virtual challenge will span the whole month of May. Members of the public will be asked to complete 5K in whatever way they can – whether it’s run, roll, walk, cycle, swim, skate or even skip – then donate a minimum of £5 to one of the charities that have signed-up, finally nominating five friends to carry on the awesome fundraising trend!

The team at Larcomes have made a great start! You can follow their progress here: @LarcAsbestos and on our Facebook and LinkedIn Pages or read more about the event and how you can take part here: 5K May
