Innovative food-to-go specialist On a Roll is swapping bread rolls for running shoes this summer, to raise money and help beat cancer.
A group of ladies from Tees-based On a Roll Sandwich company is teaming up to take part in Cancer Research’s Race for Life in Middlesbrough.
The Race for Life takes place on Sunday June 4 in Centre Square in Middlesbrough town centre.
Members of staff from across the company are taking part in the run in order to raise as much as possible for the charity.
Karina O’Hagan, HR Manager at On a Roll, said: “A team from On a Roll has decided to take part in the Middlesbrough Race for Life this year to show our support for such a worthy cause.
“We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and the event is a great way to raise much-needed funds, and have a bit of fun while we do it.
“Some of us have lost friends and family members and some currently have family members fighting cancer now.
“Also we lost a fantastic member of the team last year after a long and brave battle with cancer and we will all be thinking of her too.”
Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer and over the past two decades, the Race for Life events, held in over 150 locations across the country, have raised millions of pounds to fund lifesaving research.
Award-winning sandwich manufacturers On A Roll have become well known in the food-to-go industry for experimenting with new and innovative flavours, such as their ‘World Pantry’ range.
This year the company celebrated its tenth birthday with the news that they had been shortlisted for the Northern Powerhouse Northern Lights Awards, alongside international giants Nissan and TBA Protective Technologies.
