Ready, Steady, Go! - Sport Relief 2010
Now is the time to get sporty for a good cause, as Cheshire East Council calls on members of the public to get in shape for a major charity run.
The Sainsbury’s Sports Relief Mile 2010 is a national event that will take place in Cheshire East on Sunday, March 21st, in association with Comic Relief.
Cheshire East Council is asking people to take part in one of two sponsored runs, of at least a mile, to help raise much needed cash to help transform the lives of the poor and vulnerable here in the UK and across the world.
Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member with responsibility for health and wellbeing, said: “This is a great opportunity to do something really worthwhile and get in shape for Spring.
“Individuals, friends, families and companies, are urged to sign up and start training now for the big day.
“You can walk, run or jog – it’s up to you how you tackle it, but taking part is what’s important.
“And even if you don’t fancy running to raise funds, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved behind-the-scenes.”
Two separate runs will take place; one at The Cumberland Arena in Crewe and one at the Macclesfield Leisure Centre.
Those taking part can choose from a one, three or six-mile sponsored run. There will also be family activities on the day for spectators to enjoy.
To sign up for either of the events log on to www.sportrelief.com. Or, if you would like to get involved and help out call Andy Molyneux on 01270 537232 for the Crewe event. Call Keith Rogers on 01625 504512 for the Macclesfield event.
