Equinix Team Turns Out for Marathon Walk to Help Colleague With Cancer

5

Our Equinix colleague Stuart Turnham has been a mainstay at Equinix’s London metro, bringing passion, dedication and creativity to his job as Equinix’s Director of Enterprise and Financial Services, EMEA. Everyone who works with Stuart knows how critical he’s been to the success of our customers and our company. His insights and the support he provides our entire team have proven invaluable. Now it’s our turn to support him.

Stuart was recently diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, a blood cancer. His positive attitude and determination to beat the disease have been an inspiration to his Equinix co-workers, and we wanted to do what we could to help. On March 18, some of us joined Stuart’s family and friends for a charity walk on a marathon-length course we charted between Equinix’s London headquarters and our LD6 data center.

We had 42 people complete the partial or full course, and they covered a collective 913 miles. Through private donations and an Equinix Impact grant, we raised more than $35,000 (25,000 pounds) for the charity supporting Stuart and his family, the Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF). Anyone wishing to donate to ELF can visit the Equinix ELF Walking Marathon’s Just Giving page.

Thank you for your support!
