Boost in store for Jane Tomlinson runs

Have your say

ORGANISERS of the 10K runs held as part of fundraiser Jane Tomlinson’s charitable legacy are celebrating a major boost.

The Asda Foundation, established by the retail giant to support good causes, has announced it is to continue to support the Jane Tomlinson Run For All 10K series for a further four years.

The series covers road races in Leeds, York, Hull and Burnley and attracts thousands of runners and spectators and has raised millions for charity. The Leeds 10K alone has raised more than £2m since Mrs Tomlinson launched it in 2007.

Asda Foundation manager Julie Ward said: “Jane was an inspirational figure and through these events her memory continues to inspire people to take on challenges of their own and raise money for a host of good causes.”

Run For All’s Mike Tomlinson said: “The Asda Foundation has been a vital supporter of our 10K series and we are extremely grateful it has decided to continue with its backing.”
