The Snow Centre swaps the skis for trainers

Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s flagship event storms back to Harpenden on SundayThe Snow Centre October 9 and with the Nation high from Team GB’s success at the Rio Olympics, there couldn’t be a better time to think about taking part in a physical event such as The Herts 10k. The Herts 10k has seen the local community and companies pull together to support it year on year. One local company in particular has decided to get stuck in skis first. The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead will be swapping the skis for trainers and plans to hit the ground running.

Zoe Green, Marketing Manager at The Snow Centre in Hemel said; “We have a member of our team who is currently being cared for by Rennie Grove, following her treatment for cancer. We just wanted to give something back to the organisation and thought that getting involved in such an active way was right up our street.” The Snow Centre is planning to  enter a team into the Herts 10k as well as offering help with prizes for the highest fundraiser. Zoe continues;

“We are hoping to enter a team of around 15 people, although we are still waiting on definite numbers.” She said, “Being quite an active group of people, we are going to train together and even get team t-shirts made up, just to add to that team spirit vibe even more. The Snow Centre will also be offering a prize to the highest fundraiser comprising of private skiing or snowboarding lessons. We are also entering people who raise more than £50 into a prize draw. A great incentive to try and raise as much as you can. We haven’t entered anything like this before in terms of it being a running event, but as a company we have been involved in other charity events so are looking forward to trying out The Herts 10k.”
