Bishop’s Move helps with Roadblock Run

Dec 01, 2017
Bishop’s Move has helped a Scottish charity with its annual fundraising event: The Roadblock Run.

The charity fun run is organised by Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) to raise funds for its vital work.

It’s an annual obstacle-ridden 7K run that took place in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh on Sunday, 10 September 2017. So far, the Roadblock Run and its predecessor, Urbanathon Scotland, have raised over £300,000 for Scotland’s Health Charity. This year’s run had a variety of obstacles from inflatables to trucks and tunnels to boot-camps, all designed to encourage participants to slide, climb, scramble, crawl and most importantly have fun working their way around the course.

Bishop’s Move supported the CHSS event by providing the vehicle obstacle with a Bishop’s Move bright yellow truck. Bishop’s Move Branch Manager David Mills, Kenny Janczyk and Steven McKendrick from the Edinburgh branch were on-site to help and encourage participants, many in fancy dress, work their way through the vehicle to continue the race.

David said, “This is the fifth year that Bishop’s Move Edinburgh has supported CHSS by providing a vehicle for use as an obstacle by the fun-runners. Each year, we use a different vehicle and try and create a different obstacle within it for the runners to negotiate. It is a day that is enjoyable, a good laugh and, ultimately, raises money for a very worthy cause.”

Rachel Morrison, CHSS Events Officer said, “We would like to thank Bishop’s Move Edinburgh for all they did to help make the Roadblock Run such a success. We welcomed 332 participants to Holyrood Park and have currently raised an amazing £30K plus for Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland – with more coming in.”

Bishop’s Move also regularly assists CHSS through its ‘Donate & Declutter’ scheme, providing the charity with donations collected from customers moving house.
