This year our nominated charity is Practical Action, which uses technology to help around a million people in third world countries break out of the cycle of poverty.
The charity works with communities to find practical solutions to the challenges they face in four main areas:
• Energy access
• Urban water and waste
• Food and agriculture
• Disaster and risk reduction
AdamsonJones helps businesses here in the UK and overseas protect their innovations and bring their technologies to market, which is why we are thrilled to be fundraising for Practical Action.
The Robin Hood Half Marathon, taking place this weekend in Nottingham, is the first in a series of fundraising events that Team AJ plan to undertake over the coming months. Last year the team exceeded all expectations to come in first in the corporate challenge with a time of 01.31.54. We wish them the best of luck on Sunday.
