On the 24th May 2014, Jason Hurd, Axis Assistant Account Manager, undertook the London to Brighton Challenge, a 100k (62.1miles) jog along with 40lb in a pack on his back.
He took part in the challenge due to a recent bereavement of a close family friend. Theresa had been battling cancer for about a year before she passed away aged just 46. During her last year, she spent a lot of time with staff at the Pilgrims hospice in Ashford. While there, both she and her family received counselling and support. Theresa's husband has asked that any money raised for charity in her name be donated to Pilgrims hospice in thanks for the wonderful support they had received during a difficult time.
