AliQuantum Gaming has announced it will be sponsoring one of the gaming industry’s own in his quest to run the “toughest footrace on earth” to raise money for MENCAP, a charity that aims to help those with learning disabilities live life to the fullest.
According to James King, group head of business development at iGaming Business (part of Clarion Events), after his announcement that he will be running 156 miles through the Sahara Desert as part of the Marathon des Sables, friend and colleague Andy Jones, who is AliQuantum’s CEO and Founder got in touch to offer AliQuantum’s support.
“AliQuatum’s financial support has and will continue to push me both mentally and physically through endless miles of training and inevitably, 156 miles across the Sahara Desert. More importantly, Andy’s and AliQuantum’s generosity will benefit thousands of people with a learning disability to develop skills, gain confidence, and take part in the activities that really interest them. It goes without saying that I offer a huge thank you to Andy on behalf of myself and MENCAP,” said King in a press release.
“We’re very excited to support James during his intense training and through his incredible motivation also support such a worthy cause in MENCAP,” said Jones.
“In addition to helping him to his £10,000 donation goal, the corporate sponsorship supports an extreme training schedule that requires participation in multiple marathons and long races in environments not found in England. “
Industry colleagues are invited to join Andy Jones and AliQuantum Gaming by supporting James King reach and exceed his goal to raise £10,000 for MENCAP.
