Solihull Chamber committee members are donning their running shoes to raise cash for its chosen charity of the year, Arrive Alive.
Robert Elliot, president of Solihull Chamber, Tony Elvin and Stuart Watson, vice-presidents of the Chamber, plus Rob Kenyon, Amanda Holden, Simon Hatton, Emma O'Brien, Susie Ankrett, Lillian Elekan and Samanatha Frampton will be taking part in the charity's 5K in five days fundraising challenge.
They will have to run or walk 5km in five days as part of the challenge, raising cash for the charity in the process.
The team of keen runners are hoping to raise £500 for the charity, which funds lifesaving vehicles and equipment for Community First Responders.
Robert commented: "It's well documented that charities have struggled with funding during the covid period. These difficulties have come at a time when their services have often been required the most.
"Solihull Chamber are committed to their charity members and good causes across the borough. Arrive Alive are our charity of the year, and the 5k in 5 days initiative will not only have a positive effect on fund raising but also a positive effect on the well-being of everyone taking part."
Runners have until the festive period to complete the challenge.
