Cobra Group supports half-marathon for noble cause

The Cobra Group recently made news by supporting Ann-Marie Dillion when she run a half-marathon to raise money for the Oesophageal Cancer Fund.

Ann-Marie had lost a friend to Oesophageal cancer in January 2011. This made her decide to get involved with such work. The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) is a voluntary organisation, a registered charity which was set up in 2001 by friends of Lucilla Hyland. The intention has been to raise awareness of the symptoms of oesophageal cancer. Funds are also provided for research.

Ann-Marie Dillion ran her first half-marathon on June 26th; her aim was to raise £ 1,000 for the organisation. She trained intensely; she knew that the lives of hundreds of people depended on the fund that she was planning to raise. Ann-Marie explains, “I have been training since March, mostly in the early hours of the morning before work...One of the biggest challenges in preparation for this run has been adapting to running in 30 degree plus heat. However, training outdoors has allowed me to become acclimatized to the running conditions and it paid off on race day...Over the last six weeks, I have being training in KLCC Park, which is a great facility and setting adjacent to the Petronas twin towers, the tallest sky-scrapers in Kuala Lumpur. The view from the running track is breathtaking”.

Ann-Marie voices her happiness at having taken part in the event- “It was such a great experience! This was my first half marathon and hopefully one of many!”

The Cobra Foundation supported Ann-Marie Dillion, thereby contributing towards raising fund for a noble cause.

Cobra Group supports humanitarian trip

The Cobra Group recently went all out to support a humanitarian trip undertaken to Zambia, Botswana and Namibia.

Paige Adgemis of the Cobra Foundation, accompanied by eight Ruyton students, two teachers and one World Challenge leader went to these countries on a four-week trip. They arrived in Zambia and then went on to visit the Victoria Falls. The next on the list was their acclimatisation trek to Botswana. They travelled along the ‘Okavango Delta’ on handmade wooden boats similar to canoes called ‘Mokoros' and then through the desert in Namibia. Finally they arrived at their destination, the Waterberg Primary School, which relies on donations and volunteers to continue educating Namibian Children. The team went on to do some notable work in the school. Says Paige Adgemis, “On our first day we were faced with the challenge of purchasing all the required equipment with the money fundraised throughout the year. We had to travel for over an hour to get to Otjiwarango, where we spent a tiring and stressful day finding materials and bargaining for the best prices”. They dug trenches, mixed cement, laid bricks and did many other chores and then, with the remaining money and donations they also provided the children with netballs, soccer balls, pencils and various other goods. They also found the time to meet students and hear them out.

When the team left, everyone, including the Cobra Group representative, was happy as they had done something worthwhile.
