by msecadm4921

Access control manufacturer HID Global reports that John Laws its Regional Sales Manager for UK North and Ireland was running in the Marathon des Sables in Morocco in March.

Now in its 22nd year, the event aims to raise money for Facing Africa, an international charity concerned with the prevention and cure of Noma disease, a gangrenous infection affecting the face. Victims of Noma are mainly young children living in extreme poverty with severe levels of malnutrition.

Runners go across 151 miles across some of the world’s highest sand dunes in the Sahara Desert facing temperatures of up to 60 degrees C. HID is sponsoring John.

What they say

“ I am delighted that I have the opportunity to take part in the marathon, helping to make a difference to the children of Africa, also proving to myself that I have the strength and fitness levels to achieve such a life changing mission.’’ In 2006, John Laws completed a life long ambition to reach the peak of Mont Blanc. John had four years experience at Honeywell before joining HID last year. He also has tenures at ADT and Secom.
