Keep on running!
The close knit team at Daktronics has always been determined to direct its power as a collective towards raising money for charity and its latest endeavor was at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park during July, when it took part in the Morrisons Great Newham London Run.
The eleven-strong team comprised six Daktronics’ UK employees and the support of five family members, with the money raised being donated to Paul’s Place, a Bristol-based charity that supports and facilitates physically disabled adults.
The team is closely aligned with the site of the run, as the route took in all the iconic London 2012 Olympic Games’ legacy venues, including the Lee Valley VeloPark into which Daktronics has installed four Daktronics LED video displays, each measuring 18.10 square metres, in preparation for the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships.
The displays are located one in each corner of the indoor velodrome, to ensure that fans get multiple views of the action. Positioned at eye level from the seating areas, fans can easily look from the displays back to the live action and vice versa.
The route also passed the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park stadium. Indeed the Run represented the first event to take place there since its transformation following London 2012 and Daktronics recently announced its own involvement. Two Daktronics 15HD pixel LED video displays measuring a vast 214 square metres will be installed into the venue in time to host the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Daktronics UK extends an open invitation to all those who wish to support their endavours on behalf of Paul’s Place and offers the Paul’s Place JustGiving page (https://www.justgiving.com/paulsplace) up to the generosity of the industry.
