Haddleton Legal has been unveiled as the event sponsor for a charity event that will conclude a former Royal Marine’s gruelling charity challenge.
Steve Bannister, who is owner of Conditioned Training and The Fitness Rooms in Harrogate, is aiming to raise £30K for Help for Heroes through his Run for 30 Campaign.
Steve said: “I turned 30 last year and decided I wanted to raise £30K for Help for Heroes and really wanted to test myself so all who are close to me know exactly how much it has taken to achieve that goal.”
When guests gather for the end of campaign black tie dinner at Rudding Park next month, Steve will have completed 19 events from 10Ks, half marathons and marathons to an Ironman challenge.
The dinner is being sponsored by Haddleton Legal and Dive Shack. James Haddleton of Haddleton Legal said: “I know Steve personally and everyone at Haddleton Legal has been following his campaign closely, particularly as Help for Heroes is our charity of the year.
“We were keen to do something as a business to help Steve achieve his milestone fundraising goal and we are delighted to be the event co-sponsor on the night, marking the end of an incredibly inspiring journey,” added James.
Steve served in the Royal Marines for just over 5 years and came across soldiers who had struggled with both physical and mental challenges following recent conflicts. Through a family friend who worked closely with Help for Heroes he learnt of the charities that offer help for such challenges facing many former and current service personnel.
He added: “I chose Help for Heroes because veterans and current service personnel deserve more and I am incredibly grateful to Haddleton Legal and all those who have sponsored and supported me throughout my Run for 30 Challenge.”
