Charity Roundup 2019
Hear about our fundraising activities last year

Every year at MRN we’re passionate about helping others, whether that’s patients or charities, we want to ensure we’re always doing what we can to give our time and money to help make others’ lives better. 2019 has been business as usual for us in terms of this, we chose to support charities that we both local to us as well as charities helping on a national scale. Our chosen charities this year have been split between UK and US locations; JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund), The MK Bus Shelter, CISCRP, The Greater Illinois Chapter of Alzheimer’s Association and Breast Cancer Now.

Hopefully, you’ll have seen some of the highlights we’ve had on the blog this year about all of these great causes; whether it was our running the Berlin Marathon for Breast Cancer Now series by numerous members of the team or our Rare Disease Day special blog by Helena Baker, CEO of the Rare Disease Nurse Network.

We’re so pleased to announce that we’ve raised over £12,000 for our chosen charities – matching our total from last year and meaning for the two years that we’ve sponsored these charities, we’ve raised over £25,000! We’ve got our last event of the year, Christmas Jumper Day and the Christmas Raffle to add into the mix, so we’re hoping to reach even more, but as we’ll sure you agree, this is an amazing amount – thank you so much for your help to help us reach this incredible amount for these important causes.

We raised money for charity in a number of different ways, such as games nights, Easter bonnet competitions, a new annual Sports Day, rugby world cup sweepstakes and so much more! We’ve also finished the year by donating to local food banks across the globe with suppliers we’ve raised in our offices.

Our biggest events of the year have been our two team events, and this year, they were both marathons! With some of our teams running the Berlin and Chicago marathons (don’t worry, they were different people, given that the events were only a week apart!). Combined, these teams managed to raise over £9,000, a really incredible achievement, well done to all involved. One of our other major fundraising methods every year is our tuck shop, raising £800 this year (nearly half of last year’s total – well done to our teams for cutting down the snacks!).

We’re so thankful to all of those at MRN, friends and families, vendors and customers who have given to these causes throughout the year, thank you to all those who have helped in any way. We look forward to raising more money for some different charities in 2020! Stay tuned for our announcement of our new chosen charities, coming soon
