Steve Rivett and Peter Monok Raise Money for the Royal Society of Blind Children (RSBC)
On 5th November, two engineers, Steve Rivett and Peter Monok participated in a charity run at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with a twist. They were bravely tied together as they took it in turns to run blindfolded, relying on their senses and partner’s guidance through the course.
“We were very excited to be participating this year, especially as we were going to run blindfolded. Even when you’re an experienced runner, running blindfolded is a whole new challenge” said Steve.
Organised by the Royal Society of Blind Children (RSBC), this event helps visually impaired young people live their life without limits. Through their services, children learn new skills, make friends and experience moments that give them confidence to believe they can achieve anything. They help make sure every single blind child has the self-belief and skills to fulfil the potential we know they’ve got.
Together, they raised over £500, more than double their original target. “We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated. We raised an incredible amount of money together! Thank you so much” said Steve and Peter.
Steve and Peter would also like to make a special thank you to Alina Delicostea, who did an amazing job supporting us. She read our story and helped us raise more money by asking everyone in Birmingham to sponsor us. Steve works in the South East area and Peter in London, they were surprised at the generous contributes made by our colleagues in the Birmingham office.
