Independent financial adviser Deb Nolan and administrator Tracy Gannon from our Leeds / Bradford financial planning team are running the Asda Foundation York 10 miles on the 20thOctober 2019. They will be joined by Allan Ross, Lonsdale Wealth Management independent financial adviser in Ware, Hertfordshire. In 2018 Allan, Tracy and Deb were part of a Lonsdale team that completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Trek26 challenge and raised £3,600 for charity.
The Asda Foundation York 10k recently celebrated its tenth year. Launched in 2009, the event is a popular feature on the city’s running calendar which also includes the 10 miles and marathon.
‘Having completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks last year by walking 25 miles we wanted to take on a different challenge and raise some more money for the Alzheimer’s Society. None of us have done much running before so we are building it up slowly but feeling fitter already. Running 10 miles will be a real test but our training is going to plan and we hope to be ready for the 20thof October.’
Organised by Run For All, the 10 mile run forms part of the legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson who raised nearly £2m for charity by undertaking a series of endurance challenges, despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer. Many entrants run in aid of the 10 mile partner charities which are the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Macmillan Cancer Support, Candlelighters, York Mind, Martin House Children’s Hospice, St Leonard’s Hospice, York Against Cancer, The Island, Changing Lives and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
