January 24 - The HLPFI team may be number one when it comes to reporting the latest news on the heavy lift and project forwarding sector, but it seems our talents don't extend to the athletics track.
HLPFI's Peter Edwards and Luke King , joined by supporter Suhail Shaikh (pictured below), managing director ofSahil Group Pvt Ltd , took part in today's business fun run in Singapore, organised by Flensborg & Associates to coincide with the Breakbulk Asia event.
They limped home with the slowest competitors, despite putting in a good effort.
"It was fun," said publisher Peter Edwards, "but I won't be giving up the day job."
Participants were welcomed by 113-year-old Sister Teresa Hsu , who has devoted a lifetime to caring for others. A Royal Free Hospital-trained nurse, she has worked without pay in countries around the world, providing food and support for the homeless, hungry and orphans.
Proceeds from the run went to Teresa's Heart to Heart charity, www.hearttoheartservice.org , which helps underprivileged people in Singapore.
