Calling all runners in the Birmingham area! The 2013 Great Birmingham Run is taking place in the city on Sunday 20 October and Midlands-based children’s disability charity Newlife Foundation is looking for enthusiastic fundraisers who would like to take part.
It is the biggest half-marathon in the Midlands and regularly attracts sporting celebrity entrants. You could be rubbing shoulders with people like past entrants Haile Gebrselassie and Micah Kogo – quite literally – and can sign up to be part of the Newlife team by contacting charity fundraiser Keleigh Tomlinson on 0800 988 4640.
Minimum sponsorship required is £150, and every penny will go directly towards helping disabled and terminally ill children. You can even ring-fence your funding to be spent specifically in the West Midlands, where Newlife has provided 541 items of disability equipment totalling £763,354. Newlife will keep you informed of exactly where and how your sponsorship is spent.
