NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is supporting this weekend’s Hull Marathon, not only as a key partner but also with two relay teams participating in the prestigious event.
For the fourth year running, CCG employees will take part in the race and, by working as a team, they have challenged themselves to beat their 2018 race times.
As part of their mission to create a healthier Hull, the marathon is a fantastic opportunity for the CCG to encourage the people of Hull to improve their health and wellbeing, and it’s inspiring to see so many people taking part every year.
Sue Lee, Associate Director of Communications and Engagement, Hull CCG, said: “It is brilliant for our teams to be involved in the Hull Marathon again this year. It is always guaranteed to be a wonderful day full of community spirit and personal accomplishments.
“As key partners of the event it is fantastic to see first-hand the impact positive health and wellbeing has on the lives of people in and around Hull and to encourage that and get involved as a CCG is great.”
The CCG’s Colin Hurst will kick things off for relay team one, alongside Amy York for team two, both of whom will run the first and longest leg of the race. The baton will be passed to Varun Anand and Sue Lee for the second stretch, then onto Jason Goforth and Brian Lee before Ken Hearson and Gary Fee bring it home in the final leg.
The Hull Marathon takes place today, Sunday 22nd September, starting on the iconic Humber Bridge and finishing at East Park.
