Law firm takes part in the Great Birmingham 10K in memory of colleague

29 April 2015

A team of 19 from Birmingham based law firm Browne Jacobson will take up the challenge of the Great Birmingham 10k this weekend, in the hope of raising funds for the British Heart Foundation.

The team will be running in memory of their colleague Iain Patterson, a highly respected and very popular employment partner at the firm, who sadly passed away very suddenly at the end of last year. Iain developed and headed up the firms NHS employment practice and was pivotal in developing the firms Birmingham and then Manchester offices.

The challenge will see the team running through the streets of Birmingham, past many of the citys main landmarks and crossing the finish line on Broad Street.

This isnt the only event the law firm are supporting in a bid to raise funds and awareness for the charity. Earlier in the month a team of seven took on the gruelling Igloo Cyclo-sportive Challenge, cycling an 80 mile journey over steep terrain through the heart of the Peak District. Members of the firm will also be running a half marathon later in the year to continue to support the cause.

James Tait, employment partner at Browne Jacobson, said:

"The training so far has been tough at times but spirits of the team are good and I am confident that the thought of raising much needed funding for the charity and running in Iains memory will help motivate us all to finish the challenge in good time. The fact we are running this in aid of one of the biggest health charities is very apt, given the dedicated work Iain did for a lot of health clients. The run will be even more poignant because of the circumstances of Iains death and the fact that the British Heart Foundation is the nominated charity of his family."

Anyone that wants to support the fundraising can do so by going to the Just Giving site at https://www.justgiving.com/Browne-Jacobson-Birmingham-10K-run/. All proceeds will be going to the British Heart Foundation.
