Strutt and Parker Lewes to stage office triathlon

PUBLISHED: 16:45 14 September 2016 | UPDATED: 10:03 16 September 2016

As a firm, Strutt and Parker have committed to raising £200,000 for The Sebastian Coe Charitable Foundation. This Foundation was established with an aim to improve the physical well-being of the nation through sport, health, education and science.

Of the money they can raise, The Sebastian Coe Charitable Foundation will distribute 80% to Cancer Research UK who will use these funds to support the Francis Crick Institute, who aspires to be one of the world’s leading medical research institutes which will uniquely bring scientists researching cancer, heart disease, stroke and neurodegenerative diseases together under one roof. The aim is that by bringing the different disciplines under one roof there will be a cross pollination of ideas with treatments developed more quickly. The remaining 20% will be given to other projects focusing on the world of sport, health, education and science.

In light of the charity focus Strutt and Parker wanted to complete a physical challenge. So they plan to complete a stationary office triathlon on 22 September running, rowing and cycling their way to 1000km in 24 hours!

The team will begin on at 3pm through to 3pm the next day. Machines will be set up in the office on Lewes High Street with a window display, balloons and bucket collections going around Lewes.
