Traction Finance will be supporting Bowel Cancer UK by taking part in a drive by Belfast Hour hosts Edwards & Co Solicitors and local cloud computing specialists Novosco to have Northern Ireland companies Row A Marathon in aid of the charity.
Traction, like a number of Northern Ireland companies taking part, will have a team of staff and friends joining forces to cover the marathon distance on an indoor rowing machine on the afternoon of Friday 16th June.
The event won’t just raise sponsorship money for Bowel Cancer UK but will see the charity’s message spread through the involvement of the Twitter networking group #BelfastHour.
Bowel cancer is Northern Ireland’s second biggest cancer killer. Around 1,100 men and women are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in Northern Ireland, and 400 people die from the disease.
If diagnosed at the earliest stage, bowel cancer is highly treatable, with a survival rate of more than 93% over five years. However, poor awareness means that only 1 in 10 cases are detected at an early stage which often means it is too late to be treated.
Traction (and many others) will have rowing machines at their offices (or close by) with individuals rowing for 15 –30 minutes each. The machine will be zeroed at 1pm and stopped at 5pm with the team rowing the furthest – hopefully passing the 42k target! – being declared winners of the Bowel Cancer Challenge Cup.
It may not be too late for your work team to take part: simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org to check if your workplace can either enter or join an existing team.
