The Standard Chartered Great City Race is a unique 5km corporate running challenge which takes place around the closed off streets of the City of London.
The corporate team running event, which aims to raise funds and awareness for the official race beneficiary Seeing is Believing, will feature companies from the Accountancy, Banking, Media, Insurance and Legal sectors.
Seeing is Believing is committed to help tackle avoidable blindness across the world and this year, all funds raised through the race will be used to support the ongoing East Africa Child Eye Health programme. Standard Chartered has also promised to match £10 from each runner’s entry fee pound for pound to maximise the amount raised in 2015.
“Every team of four who enter this year’s will provide enough funding to train 1 health worker in Primary Eye Care”
