Annabel's Angels is the Official Charity Partner for Derby 10 Mile

When: Sunday 25th November 2018 at 11.00am

Where: Starts & Finishes at Pride Park Stadium

The Western Power Derby 10 Mile race, took place on Sunday 25th November starting and finishing at the home of the Rams, Pride Park Stadium. 

Annabel's Angels was delighted to have been selected to be the official race charity partner three years in a row! We had a super day cheering on our fundraising runners and meeting members of the public. We also took up the opportunity to have a few interviews on the day to promote our work. Our runners and supporters raised over £2500 on the day which will all go towards supporting improving the quality of life for local families living with cancer.


Simon Hancox, Chair of Annabel's Angels, said:

“The 2016 & 2017 Derby 10 mile events were both very successful for the charity – runners and supporters raised almost £6000 in total. It’s not just about the donations though; seeing our logo and information in the build up to the event, seeing it, hearing it, feeling it on the day and seeing the logo on the backs of the 1000 race finishers’ t-shirts around Derby and beyond has all helped to significantly raise our profile. I’d like to think we’re seen as a professional local cancer support charity and it’s through effective partnerships such as working with the Derby 10 mile team that boosts our brand awareness, increases our public confidence and encourages more families living with cancer to get in touch for support.”

“I’m looking forward to running the race again this year, and I’m going to encourage some of our own running trustees to give it a go too.”

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 10 Mile race. We had such a positive event last year. 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 10 Mile 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.
