On Thursday 15th March, Tower 42 in London is set to be surrounded by a sea of red T-shirts as 1,000 eager runners prepare to race up to the tower’s top floor. Vertical Rush, is one of the most challenging fundraising events in London, promoted by Shelter, with every runner set to scale 932 steps and all 42 floors.
The Hitachi Solutions team isn’t intimidated though, because all those red T-shirts, all those stairs, all those floors, mean more money helping people in need. In London alone, a household is made homeless every 21 minutes, so the capital’s a fitting setting to get behind such an important cause.
Our team of 22 eager fundraisers has been training hard and is set to raise a considerable amount to support the charity’s fantastic work. Overall, Vertical Rush 2018, the 10th anniversary of the challenge, looks set to raise well over £300,000 — helping Shelter to continue its vital work.
