Knight Frank Investment Management (KFIM) Charity Fundraise
Following months of dedicated training, five hardy cyclists set off in the early afternoon of Thursday 13th June from the KFIM office in the City. The cycle leg covered 145 miles to Lulworth on the Dorset coast, where the baton was handed over to the runners, who covered the finishing 15 mile stretch along the coast path and into Portland.
Despite a number of injuries and setbacks, all parties crossed the finish line, and over £18,500 has been raised for two very important charities.
There is still time to donate and KFIM would be grateful for all donations received. To make a donation, please visit the Virgin Giving page.
