A Watford charity has unveiled the customised medal that will be presented to all finishers of this year’s Watford 10k course.
Featuring the kangaroo logo of Kelly’s Storage (the race organiser and funder) the medals are sure to be treasured by everyone taking part in the event.
The Watford 10k will take place in Cassiobury Park on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7. Runners on the 10k course will once again be passing through the bluebells. There are distances for runners of all ages and abilities with a 1k and 3k run as well as the hugely popular 10k course.
Lory Pace, club member of the Watford Joggers who took part last year said: “It’s a great 10k run for a great charity, Watford Mencap. Get involved.”
Carol Tunstall, Watford Mencap’s fundraising manager, said: “Kelly’s have been amazing friends to Watford Mencap. By organising and paying for the event they have enabled us to support even more local people with learning disabilities to reach their full potential and to provide valuable respite for their carers.
“As one parent recently told us, Without Watford Mencap I’d be in trouble – they are my life and my son’s life. If it was not here, part of my life would be taken away.”
The charity branch of Kelly’s Storage, a storage facility company based in St Albans, will once again pay for and organise the event so that every penny raised goes straight to Watford Mencap, a local charity that provides activities and support to children and adults with learning disabilities and their families.
This event is always a fun day out for all the family with plenty going on at HQ, chip timing and unique bespoke medals for all runners.
Entry for the event is by voluntary donation so all your money goes directly to the charity. You can enter the run at watford10k.org.uk
