5th September 2017

The team at Sheffield integrated creative agency, Born + Raised, are striding together as they prepare for one of the year's biggest charity fundraisers.

Night Strider sponsored by Gripple is the annual nocturnal half marathon and 10k walking challenge that aims to raise more than £130,000 towards patient care at St Luke's Hospice. Last year's event saw more than 1,000 St Luke's supporters take to the streets as darkness fell on the city on an autumn evening. This year, more people than ever before will take up the challenge of becoming Night Striders and lighting up the night sky on October 7, and amongst them will be a team from Born + Raised. Louise Greensmith, Senior designer at Born + Raised, said: -We're so excited to support St Luke's at this year's Night Strider, it's a fantastic event and we're looking forward to helping raise a lot of money for a great cause. St Luke's Corporate Fundraising Manager Jack Kidder commented: -It's brilliant that Born + Raised have decided to join in the fun and make a difference to the lives of all our patients and their families. -It's a fantastic challenging evening of fun and makes a perfect team building exercise. -We'd love to hear from any other company who want to follow the Born + Raised lead and register to become part of the Night Strider experience. The individual Night Strider entry fee is just £25 per person - to sign up simply visit
