9 – After Run
Special Needs Club wishes to thank our runners and the spectators for once
again making the run such a success. This year we received 520 entries;
considering there were 8 other runs on the same day we are very grateful that
so many runners chose to run our 10K.
A VERY BIG
THANK YOU to the many volunteers and friends who helped on the day. We
had over 70 volunteers covering the many tasks required throughout the 10k
course and in the community centre. So well done everyone!
All the proceeds
raised from the run go towards the club’s ‘Sensory Soft Play Resource’. It
is managed, maintained and funded by the volunteers of the Wednesday Club.
They were presented
with their trophies by one of our sponsors, Derek Holmes (Discount VW Audi Centre (Hoylake)):
Lady Winner: Jayne Joy
Male Winner: Joseph Boden
(Wallasey AC) (Age 25)
The winners were
presented with their trophies by Derek Holmes (Discount VW Audi Centre, Hoylake). Thanks also for
his excellent beetle car display, which helped us advertise the 10k run to
everyone driving through Hoylake in the week leading up to run.
