Blue Latitude Health is a healthcare and pharmaceutical strategic marketing consultancy, and part of our day-to-day work involves working closely with oncology healthcare professionals and patients to understand their experiences. Through this work, we've come to appreciate the amazing work that Macmillan Cancer Support do in supporting patients and their families through difficult times. Because we care so deeply about the work Macmillan do, Blue Latitude Health has formed a London Triathlon team that will participate this Saturday, 8th August. The team has been hand-picked, is dedicated, and has huge potential. (And what we lack in athletic prowess, we more than make up for in determination.) Running, swimming, and cycling under the Blue Latitude Health banner, our team for 2015 is:
So far, the combined fundraising efforts of the team total just over £1500, including the cash raised by our “Office Triathlon” event earlier this week. We hula-hooped, had a mini table tennis tournament, and ‘rowed’ in office chairs (to the horror of our First-Aiders) to stump up some cash for Macmillan. Here are just a few snaps of the chaos:

Each member of the team is running for a different reason, here are just some of the stories behind the Blue Latitude Health team:

None of us have taken on the triathlon at our chosen distances before. We have never strung these three events together. We have little experience of swimming in open water. Our main objective is survival and to raise money for MacMillan.
Updated 10th August 2015 with photos from the event - the team successfully completed all events at the London Triathlon! Well done, team! Please do continue donating - we are still collecting donations for Macmillan Cancer Support and are 84% of the way to our goal as of today.
