Jerome says, “C2 Safety is dedicated to helping our local charities here in the South West and we like to do as much as we can to support those to help others across our region. I personally am looking to complete my 100th marathon in May, which will be a 100 mile run. I am also hoping for a world record for the most marathons run in a company mascot costume as well as teaching myself to rollerblade ahead of an in-line skate marathon I am doing in September. Charity really is at the very fore front of our business.”
