Our Head of Support Services, Ahmad Butt, will be running this year’s British 10k to help raise funds for the British Polio Fellowship. Ahmad has decided to take the idea of ‘going the extra mile’ quite literally, and will be putting his body on the line in order to try and raise £3k for the charity.
Prior to working with the British Polio fellowship, Ahmad worked as the Manager of the Barnet CAB Money Advice Unit, and before this, as the Director of IPR advice centre in Islington. As well as this, Ahmad was a guest lecturer at the London School of Economics from 1997 to 2010 on their LL.M graduate insolvency programme. He also brings experience from commercial claims firms and solicitors practices.
The race takes place on the 10th of July, with a route through central London, which passes many of the capital’s most iconic landmarks, including the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Ahmad is keen to raise funds for the British Polio Fellowship, and had this to say:
“I’m running because I believe that the British Polio Fellowship can continue to provide vital assistance to those living with Polio and Post Polio Syndrome (PPS).
Many people up and down the country live with the consequences of PPS, without complaining. I am constantly reminded how indiscriminatory this illness is and the life altering consequences it can have on those who live with it.”
Ahmad has set an initial target of £3k and any support would be highly appreciated!
