Derby’s newest race, the Western Power 10Mile, is set to take place this Autumn starting and finishing at the home of the Rams, the iPro Stadium.
We at Annabel's Angels are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been selected as the official race charity partner!
Simon Hancox, Chair of Annabel’s Angels said:
“We’re overjoyed at being the official race charity partner for the Derby 10M. This gives us a tremendous opportunity to promote our work to thousands of people and to reach more local families living with Cancer.”
“We’ve had many of our supporters raise funds for the Charity whilst completing running challenges over the past two years. The initial sign up, the training and that special feeling on race day is something that many people seem to enjoy – me included! A few of our Trustees also enjoy the odd run so I’m hopeful we’ll see a few Annabel’s Angels t-shirts amongst the Derby 10M runners on the big day. We’re hopeful that we can raise thousands of pounds to help more local people living with Cancer.”
BBC Radio Derby’s Craig Ramage, Patron of Annabel’s Angels, will be placing the runners under starter’s orders on race day. Craig said:
“I feel very privileged and honoured to be starting this year’s Derby 10M. I am always pleased to support any Derby based event where people set out to raise funds for their chosen charities. I, of course, wish everyone a great day and send my very best wishes to all, including my friends at Annabel’s Angels who are running to raise money for this very special charity.”
Richard Kay is the Race Director, who was delighted to have Annabel's Angels as the official charity:
“One of our big aims as organisers of the Derby 10M is to support the local area. When it came to choosing the Official Race Charity, Annabel’s Angels fitted the profile perfectly. We’re encouraging as many runners as possible to join Craig’s colleagues, BBC Radio Derby’s Ed Dawes and Owen Bradley, to run in aid of this charity and raise funds to support local people living with Cancer.“
