Fundraising event turns into family affair for Internal Communications Manager Rachael McGraw

First mini monster

Rachael, her husband and two children are taking part in the First Mini Monster Fun Bike and Run in Leeds this July – and are aiming to raise £100 for Save the Children into the bargain. 

If you’d like to make a donation to help them on their way to achieving that target then please visit

All donations will be gratefully received!

The First Mini Monster Fun Bike and Run is a relay event for teams of four people. The family version involves each person in the team completing one leg of the relay – either a 1.5 km run or a 5km bike ride.

There’s also a version of the event just for the adults which involves each team member running a leg of 3km or biking 10km.

There are two First Mini Monster events taking place nearby this summer – one in Manchester’s Philips Park on Sunday 28 June and the other in Roundhay Park in Leeds on Sunday 5 July. The events are organised by FirstGroup plc, Britain’s largest bus operator.
