Staff at Rollits LLP will be aiming to demonstrate leadership and teamwork when they take to the streets of Hull to raise funds for charity and test themselves against other businesses.


As competitors in the MKM Hull 10k Corporate Challenge – part of the Hull 10k public race – the Rollits runners will be looking to cross the line as quick as they can, but it’s the quickest combined time that counts towards a win.


Team captain Josh Hobson, and a solicitor in the Corporate team  said: “The Corporate Challenge is all about each of us completing the 10k as quickly as we can and also supporting each other on the way, working collectively.”


The MKM Hull 10K Corporate Challenge 2024 takes place in Hull city centre on Sunday June 9th and is organised by Run For All, which is part of the lasting legacy of the late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. 


Rollits will be running to raise money for Bliss, the firm’s charity of the year which supports parents and families of premature or sick babies by providing face-to-face and email support, giving them access to practical information Anyone can donate to via the team’s JustGiving page, which has a team target of £750.


Josh said: “We’ve set up a running club so that we can be in top shape on the day and with our office being located on High Street it’s been easy to chart out our post-work practice route we can mirror the first 5K of the actual event. It’s a great way for us all to prepare for the day and enjoy some team bonding in the process, plus it means we miss the rush hour when we go home afterwards.
“I have never run a 10K before so it’s exciting to take on this challenge, and it’s a great way to keep fit. Rollits raises awareness and money for charities in a variety of ways, so we decided this was an excellent addition to our annual fundraising calendar.”

Rollits has created a JustGiving page and are currently half-way to their fundraising goal.  If you can spare any money as a donation and as added motivation then it would be greatly appreciated by the team.
