Society HR professional raises £550 for a cancer charity

Janet Lightfoot from our HR team successfully completed the Leeds Xpress Triathlon at Leeds Grammar School in one hour and 55 minutes, raising £550 for Breast Cancer Now - including £185 in matched funding from the Society.

The event started with a 400m swim in the six lane indoor pool, followed by a 23.6km cycle along the A61 and finally a 5.4km off-road run on closed roads and tracks. Janet completed these three events in 11 minutes: 52 seconds, one hour: eight minutes and 31 minutes: one second respectively.

Janet said: “I knew my first triathlon would be a great challenge for me, especially having to combine all three activities, but what a great way to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. It’s a very personal charity to me as my mum has been affected by breast cancer, and I wanted to do something to raise funds for vital research.”
