During the Race for Mace event in London, runners raised almost £28,000 for the Mace Foundation. The race, which was part of the 25th anniversary celebration of consulting firm Mace, was not only attended by Mace employees, but also by suppliers and clients.
Last month, consulting firm Mace organised the Race for Mace in the Regent’s Park in London. The running event, which was part of Mace’s 25th anniversary celebrations, was attended by a total of 462 runners, who collectively raised £27,946 for the Mace Foundation. “It was such a fantastic and fun evening and it was great to share it with our clients, suppliers, friends and families. Thank you to everyone who brought so much energy and enthusiasm to the park and helped make our first Race for Mace London such a huge success,” comments Mark Reynolds, CEO of Mace.
At the end of the event, Reynolds awarded trophies to the fastest female (21.37 minutes), fastest male (15.09 minutes), fastest team and fastest children. In addition, prizes were handed out for the best dressed team and child.
The Mace Foundation was launched by Mace in 2012 to provide disadvantaged people and communities with support. The foundation actively donates to charities and not-for-profit organisations and provides support through strategic partnerships within four specific campaigns: education and employment; communities; health and wellbeing; and culture, heritage and sport
In recent months, the foundation has donated £75,000 to Tate to boost access to art for hard to reach community segments and £5,000 to outdoor-education charity Outward Bound to help 60 disadvantaged young people in Birmingham and Manchester.
