Over the past 6 months the Steve Prescott Foundation have been working closely with St Helens Council on securing a 10k Run in St Helens for the local community and running enthusiasts to participate.
Inspirational Steve Prescott MBE is very passionate about the run “We have been looking into the prospect of a run for quite some time. Many surrounding areas have already successfully organised races of this kind and I feel that St Helens could benefit from having one of its own. This year I was honoured to launch the Men’s Health Forum. Their aim is to get a million people more active and lead a healthier lifestyle; this 10k Run will give men and women in our area the opportunity to play their part towards achieving this goal. The Event will not only benefit the Steve Prescott Foundation, but we are also looking into the prospect of you being able to raise much needed funds for other local charities that serve the St Helens Community. Hopefully the run will be a focus for many people’s new year’s resolution”
Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Culture, Communications and Town Centre Councillor Barrie Grunewald, said: “We’re delighted that the run is going ahead.
“I’m sure it will provide a major boost to Steve’s fantastic fundraising efforts – and help to focus a lot of people on the benefits of a healthier lifestyle.”
By January 10th a dedicated website will be in place with Entry Forms, Information and Training plans.
The route of the Run will take in North Road and Victoria Park, it will be challenging, but will give participants a real sense of achievement.
