Kris completed the 25K Thames Path Challenge in September 2015 – along with his wife Jacqui – raising a total of almost £4000 for Cancer Research UK.
The award was presented by Phil Martin, Cedabond Chairman and Executive Director.
He explains why Kris was selected for thisprestigious award…
“Every year the board of mdirectors look at both our members and suppliers to look for an individual or company that have made a contribution to charity. The Bob McNab Charity Shield is named after a former Chairman of CEDA and Cedabond, who – with his wife – raised thousands of pounds to help children in Russia.
This year many people were nominated, but it was felt that Kris not only helped raise the money for Cancer Research, but was also having treatment for cancer himself. It was the easiest decision we have made to give Kris the award.”
Following his win, Kris was shocked and humbled, having had no idea he had been chosen…
“I am incredibly grateful and honoured to have been presented with this award! The Thames Path Challenge was a way for me to pay back and raise funds for Cancer Research, following the fantastic treatment and incredible team I have experienced during my ongoing treatment. A big thank you to all who nominated me for this award, my generous sponsors and my wife and team-mate Jacqui.”
