Maverick execJon Sidwick completes 50 half marathons in a year for charity
Jon Sidwick European director of audiovisual distributor TDMaverick was not only busy establishing Maverick divisions around Europe last year, he was also completing his own personal challenge of 50 half marathons in the space of a year to mark a rather special birthday.
During 2012, Jon (pictured) completed the Virgin London marathon and a further 48 half marathons in 10 countries and on all five continents. He reached the half-way mark whilst on a trip to Sydney with BenQ and completed another across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco before joining Maverick and its Club Maverick VIPs at InfoComm. At the end of December he completed his target by running the Stanwick Santa half marathon on 16 December 2012.
To date, Jon has raised more than €8,000 for the audio visual industry charity, Vision, boosted with a generous donation from Mavrick vendor, Ergotron.
It is not too late to help Jon raise more for this wonderful charity, whose fundraising is for the benefit of blind and visually impaired children.
