Jo Brewer has joined neuroscience charity Spinal Research in a newly created fulltime role of Key Events Co-ordinator.
The new post has been created to maximize and strengthen Marathon opportunities. Jo will be responsible for the entire running events portfolio from marathons such as the Flora London Marathon to the many 10K road races and fun runs around the country.
The highly successful Runners Network, set up by volunteer fundraisers nearly a decade ago, will become a focus for Jo. This group of some 850 individuals has raised and donated over £1m to Spinal Research since it began in the late 1980's.
Jo joins Spinal Research from Action Medical Research where she was the National Events Fundraiser and managed the successful Bring your Bear campaign earlier this year.
