Freeths Solicitors sponsor Blenheim 7k 2018
Sarah Foster, Managing Partner at Freeths Solicitors in Oxford, said: “At the heart of our firm’s values is the statement that we must always “do the right thing”. It is why we are Oxford’s leading law firm. This is evidenced by our commitment to the community in which we serve. We support many worthwhile community and charity related initiatives. This is why we are particularly proud to be the headline sponsor of the Blenheim 7k fun run for the sixth consecutive year running. We support the fun run not only because it enables runners to support charities that are close to their hearts but also to use the time to spend with their families in such beautiful surroundings. We would like to wish all the runners the best of luck.”
Origins of the 4 mile race
The 4 miles on wheels event was pioneered in 2014 by young 24 year old Edward McDonagh, accompanied by Johnathan Watson, who suffered a life-changing brain injury in a car accident at the age of 8. Edward was fundraising for the Children’s Trust which supported him through his year-long stay in hospital and rehabilitation.
