Runners fly the flag for the Great Birmingham Run

Dilly joins the fun run

Two members of George Eliot staff took part in the BUPA Great Birmingham run on Sunday (19 October).

Deputy Director of Nursing, Dilly Wilkinson and Community Midwife, Sue Mousley were amongst the 20,000 runners to face the 13.1 mile course around Birmingham city centre.

Live music and thousands of supporters turn out to cheer runners around some of the city's most iconic sights including the Bullring, the Cadbury's factory in Bournville and Edgbaston cricket ground, all of which are geared up to help raise money for various charities.

Dilly Wilkinson said: “I am running on behalf of Marie Curie cancer care and for Bob Jakin Ward which is our dementia unit here at the hospital, but I believe that as long as people give to a good cause then it makes it all worthwhile.

“I am representing the George Eliot along with the rest of my team from British Military Fitness in Solihull so we’re all hoping to raise as much as possible for lots of different charities.”

Sue Mousley said: “I ran last year and really enjoyed it so I have decided to enter again this year.  I am running on behalf of the George Eliot Oasis Project which is something close to my heart.

“Running is a great way to keep fit and healthy, and I’d encourage anyone to get started.  I started running five years ago and I never thought I’d get this far.”
