Disability Sports Humber signs up to be Charity Partner of Hull 10k & Half Marathon and Hull Marathon.
It’s been a busy week at Disability Sports Humber where we have signed up as a partner charity of the Jane Tomlinson Run For All Hull 10k & Half Marathon. We are one of just three local charities to have the honour of partnering up with Run For All, allowing our charity to grow together with other local and national charities. We as a charity had over 50 runners take part in the Hull 10K last year and we are hoping for even more this year.
On top of that, we have also been chosen as one of five charities to partner up with the 2018 Hull Marathon. We have places available for all three runs (10K, half marathon and full marathon) and are now looking for runners! You can sign up by either joining our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/597021177131062/) or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some disabled people are being pushed out of sport because of a lack of funding and that’s something we want to stop. That’s why we are asking you to get your running shoes on and take part so that hundreds of local disabled people can access sport.
Daryl Jones, Charity Manager, commented:
“We have been working hard behind the scenes so that our runners have the support that they need. Our runners are from all walks of life; runners who run 10k weekly down to just people who are aiming to get fit and see completing the 10k as a milestone. We welcome anyone, whether you’ve just started running or have ambitions to finish in the top 10! The charity has just recently turned a year old and we are entirely run on public donations. We support and fund disability sport across the Humber, from funding a sports chair which costs from £3,000 to a new set wheels for a chair at £700. Even if you can just raise a small amount, every little helps the charity. So please get involved and become part of our running family!”
