Last weekend, our team were supporting the Plymouth Relay For Life, in support of Cancer Research. The work of this charity is close to all of our hearts, and is especially important to the leader of our business. On the morning after Optimus PM rebranded from Existem-am, our CEO and founder Mark Russell lost his father to a battle against cancer. Mark and his family have been involved in events to help Cancer Research UK but their biggest challenge was to start the annual Plymouth Relay for Life. This event is a 24 hour relay that brings the community together to beat cancer sooner by fundraising vital funds.
Despite the event falling on a particularly bad weekend for weather; this year’s relay was a huge success. This year’s event has raised an incredible £54,000 so far, with fundraising continuing until October. If you would like to support this amazing cause and make a donation, please follow this link.
