We are delighted to share that Team CDW UK successfully completed the Rock n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon on Sunday 13 November 2016.
Running to raise funds on behalf of The Stroke Association were Yvonne Matzk (Partner Alliances Director), Ben Laws (Head of Enterprise Partners), Carl Mitchell (Head of Workspace Partners) and Barry Harber (Supply Chain Manager).
CDW UK’s Yvonne said “Most people think Stroke is reserved for the 'aged', however it is alarming how many young adults, children and babies also suffer strokes. Everyone thinks it will never happen to them, but to have 2 members of a small team affected within a month of each other really hits home that it can happen to anyone. This is why I am challenging myself to raise funding and awareness”
Final Finish Times for the Team were as follows;
Carl Mitchell – 02:08:21
Yvonne Matzk – 02:13:47
Barry Harber – 02:26:42
Ben Laws – 02:26:44
Making this achievement all the more impressive, the team had arrived in Las Vegas less than 24 hours before the start of the race and were struggling with jetlag having had just FOUR hours sleep the night before!
