It was that time of year again - the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge. Last Wednesday, 34 men and women from Hydrogen donned their snazzy purple bibs, limbered up with a few lunges and took to the 5.6km course around London’s Battersea Park. This year marked the 5th consecutive time the team have done so, raising a brilliant £1084 for Age UK.
Battling against the 30-degree heat alongside employees from 413 other companies, the Hydrogen team was cheered on by colleagues from our Legal, Technology, Business Transformation, Finance, Life Sciences and Energy practices (many of whom took a very active role in the celebratory drinks that followed!)
Hydrogen’s Martin Smith earned a well-deserved pint after he finished in 23:23, 506th place, a truly impressive feat considering the 14,598 people taking part. Congratulations to both him and Izzy Brooman (29:06), Hydrogen’s fastest lady, for their achievements.
Hydrogen CEO, Ian Temple, had this to say: “Well done to everyone who participated! It was great see the Hydrogen team out in force, supporting such a worthy cause.”
