Mike’s Marathon Bite of the Big Apple

Michael Scallan, Business Development Manager for Intech Telecom is to run the New York marathon on I November 2009 to raise money for the Hampshire & IOW Youth Options charity.

Youth Options seeks to provide help and support for the young people of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight through activities and social education programmes that develop, inform, educate and entertain in an atmosphere of honesty, fair play and responsible concern for themselves and others. It is not unusual for Youth Options to have contact with 30,000 young people in one year and public donations are critical source of income for the charity’s important work.

Based in Chandlers Ford, Intech Telecom has been providing communications solutions since 2001 and is an established communications provider for the provision of SpliceCom, Toshiba, Siemens, and Avaya converged IP telephony products.

Commenting on the marathon run, Michael Scallan said, “It’s important that those of us in business give something back to the communities that we serve. Getting my running shoes on for Youth Options seems an excellent way of getting fit and helping a charity that does excellent work with our young people. I hope all my old mates in the comms industry and others will want to dip their hands in their pockets and show some support.”
