Charity run organisers call for sponsors

The region’s largest corporate charity run is calling for sponsors to boost its fund-raising for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Michelmores Charity Run, which is now in its 15th year, attracts over 1000 runners and now raises in excess of £30,000 each year for its chosen charity.  The run takes place over a 5K city centre course which starts on Cathedral Yard and finishes at Exeter Castle.

Michelmores Marketing Director Louise Edwards, commented: “It’s the race’s 15th anniversary and to celebrate this fantastic landmark we want to break all fund-raising records, so the more sponsors we can attract, the more money will go to support the wonderful work of Macmillan.

“We are appealing to businesses’ sense of corporate social responsibility but in addition to doing something for the community, there are real promotional and branding opportunities associated with the event.“

The cost of supporting the event ranges from £50 to £1000 and opportunities include a large company logo on the race t-shirt worn by all runners, logo on race numbers, logo on website and invite packs, a banner at the start and/or finish, sponsorship of any one of the six prizes awarded and supplying an item of choice to go in to the runners’ goody bag.
