Asics London 10k...a massive thank you to everyone involved!
We want to say a huge well done to everyone that took part...
On Sunday we had 30 people take on the ASICS London 10k in the bright and sunny London for MS-UK. Congratulations and thank you to all those that ran and came along to cheer and support, it goes so far in helping those affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) to live happier and healthier lives.
Part of our 30 racers was a running group from Berkshire, who was organised by a cherished long-term fundraiser who is affected by MS herself. Alongside many people who have taken part in the Asics London 10k previously, as they enjoyed it so much before!
Our team have been hosting their own events to help fundraise for this day, ranging from a gin tasting night, to a boot camp and even a rock and roll bingo night!
We had a very enthusiastic cheer point of volunteers who came along to support #TeamPurple at this event in London, most of who had either volunteered before or had taken part in our other events. We are so immensely grateful for this support and just can’t do these events without you, so we wanted to give a massive thank you!
Here is what Chris and Fran Setterfield, two of our amazing volunteers, had to say about the day…
'We love supporting our runners at the cheer points. Seeing the unexpected smiles on their faces when they suddenly hear their names being called out means so much to them! We know how important this is, having been at the receiving end!'
Deb Wald, who ran the race itself, said 'I’m so happy to have taken part and done it again for MS-UK, there’s a continuity with them that’s very motivating.'
