Each year, the employees in RiverStone’s UK companies choose a charity to support with their fund-raising activities.  This year we have chosen Macmillan Cancer Support. From its early beginnings in 1911, Macmillan Cancer Support has grown to become the largest cancer care and support charity in the UK. They provide nurses and therapists to help cancer suffers through treatment, advisers to tell them which benefits they’re entitled to, volunteers to give them a hand with the everyday things and campaigners to push for better cancer care. Please help us raise funds for Macmillan to continue to make this possible.

On Friday 20th September 4 teams from RiverStone will be walking, running, cycling, swimming and rowing as far as they can to raise money for Macmillan. Between us we will be completing a massive 154 mile walk, cycling 416 miles, running 132 miles, swimming 22,400 metres (that’s almost 900 lengths of a pool) and finally also rowing 70,000  metres – all in a day!  Then at the end of that challenge we will compare our fundraising efforts against our colleagues in RiverStone’s US office who are also completing various sports to raise money on the same day.

Between them, the 4 RiverStone teams in the UK are aiming  to raise £6,000 for Macmillan. Please help us to reach our target by donating through our JustGiving pages at:
