Have you ever considered taking part in a personal challenge this year, such as running your first 10k, marathon, bike ride to raise funds for The Yard?
A huge thank you to the team from AECOM who completed the 7 Hills of Edinburgh Challenge and raised over £1000 for The Yard. Read all about their gruelling challenge last weekend on their blog http://ashe50.blogspot.co.uk/
