CZWG’s inaugural #HIVISRun

Thank you to everyone who braved the tail end of torrential downpours yesterday evening to take part in our HI-VIS Run! We had over 50 runners and volunteers complete the 5km route and enthusiastically cajole our runners towards the finish line.

Chelsea Way officially opened the event on behalf of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and spoke about how our support matters as a fitting legacy to Stephen’s memory. A special shout out to the fantastic young people from Somerville Running Club and to everyone who finished their first ever 5K! Peter Kelly from Newcastle University awarded prizes to Connor Matthews from Somerville who achieved the fastest overall time, and the team from Reddy Architecture + Urbanism who took away the largest “non-CZWG” team entry. We hope that those of you who joined us for the post run meet-up enjoyed the opportunity to mingle with like-minded colleagues on a beautiful evening. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a success and we hope to see you again next year!

Our HI-VIS Run was kindly sponsored by Newcastle University and London Building Control. All proceeds will go toward the Trust's Scholarship Fund at Newcastle for two Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students to study Architecture.

The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust believes that architecture as a profession and the built environment that surrounds us should be designed by the people who live in it, celebrating and giving voice to the rich and diverse cultural heritage of people from every background.
