September 15th saw the return of the ASDA Foundation’s Bury 10K, which we’re proud to say we supplied.
What happened at the Bury 10K?
The race began at The Rock shopping centre, and lead participants on an incredible journey through Bury town. On their journey, they passed by the Town Hall, Parish Church, Fusilier Museum and the Art Museum. Participants received one of our Bespoke Medals at the finish line, specially designed for the Bury 10K.
The repeat event is part of Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, one of the UK’s biggest not-for-profit event companies. They provide a platform for a host of charities across the UK. Run For All is a piece of the legacy left behind by the late Jane Tomlinson CBE. Jane courageously defied her cancer diagnosis and went on to participate in numerous endurance events. These events included a 4,200-mile bike ride across the US. Ultimately this incredible endeavour helped her to raise the money needed to get Run For All started.
The Jane Tomlinson Appeal
Run For All acts as a platform for fundraising for many charities, but also actively supports the Jane Tomlinson Appeal. The Jane Tomlinson Appeal focuses strongly on supporting children’s health and wellbeing. Alongside this, it also aims to improve the lives of those with cancer substantially. Most recently the charity has offered OWLS support to children. OWLS exists to help children overcome the grief of losing a significant loved one in their lives.
The Bury 10K played host to a vast number of participants. It proved to be another very successful event for Run For All and the ASDA Foundation. We want to offer our congratulations to everyone who took part in the 10K and the Family Fun Run, which started a few hours later.
There are more Run For All events to come, with the Sheffield 10K taking place on the 22nd of September, and the Yorkshire Marathon on the 20th October. Keep your eyes peeled for both.
If the works of Run For All inspire you, Running Imp and Bespoke Medals can help you create your fantastic fundraising event. We focus on supplying the best in sporting events equipment, essentials and mementoes. This can (and has) ranged from the humble safety pin to the world’s largest medal. Whatever it is you need for your event, we can provide.
