IT firm managers run miles for Mind

Written by Peter Davison.

Managers at Bradford-on-Avon based IT support firm Systemagic have been raising money for mental health charity Mind and raising workplace awareness of mental health issues.

Managing director James Eades, chairman Martin Spiller, operations manager Harriet Brooks, and account manager Mark Salen set the bar by dusting off their running gear and completing Miles For Mind, a virtual run that covered 50 miles in aid of Mind.

The leadership team all did their bit to individually cover 50 miles and documenting their runs with thousands of other participants across the country.

"Miles for Mind has been a fantastic way to encourage staff to get active and work together while promoting health and wellbeing in our workplace," said James.

"We're really pleased that the team have supported such a brilliant cause and if it gets people talking more about mental health it's certainly worthwhile."
