Cloudmetix team leader glides for charity
Netmetix is quite literally all about the Clouds at the moment as Stephen Groundwell, a Sales Executive from the company, is set to do his longest ever paraglide this month for charity.
After taking up paragliding 2 years ago, Stephen has decided to put his hobby to use and raise funds towards blood cancer charity, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. The charity is the only one in the UK that solely dedicates its research into blood cancers with 28,500 people being diagnosed every year. It is a cause that is close to my heart as well as Stephen’s.
We are supporting the charity paraglide through Cloudmetix, which is our latest complete cloud-based solution.
Over a full day Stephen aims to be air bound for as long as possible, flying the furthest achievable distance. He has set himself a personal target of 30 miles throughout the day, which is 10 miles more than his previous record.
We are appealing for support for this very worthy cause:
Where will your donations go?
- To help finding better treatments and cures for all blood cancers, including leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
- £20 million is needed every year for the life-saving work to continue.
- To support 260 active research projects around the UK.
- To improve the quality of life for all patients touched by these conditions.
“Paragliding is a completely eye-opening experience, I’ve wanted to get into it all my life. My previous personal record was 20 miles in a whole day, so I think this will be very difficult. But this is in aid of a good cause so please sponsor me whatever you can. I really appreciate all of your support towards helping with this common cause of Leukaemia & Lymphoma.”
