Some of our staff and volunteers will be taking part in this year’s Leeds 10K run. This is to help raise funds to keep our advocacy and inclusion work across Leeds going.
We are looking for people to sponsor our team and help by donating. In the weeks and months leading up to the run, they will be training to be fit for the big day.
The route starts outside the Parkinson Steps at the University of Leeds. Going through Woodhouse, Hyde Park, Headingley, Meanwood and Lovell Park, it ends on the Headrow near the Leeds Art Gallery. It takes place on Sunday 18th June, starting at 9am.
How to donate
Any donations made to support us will pay for all kinds of work we do. For example:
- £5 will cover the bus fare of a client meeting with one of our advocates in our office
- £10 can help to pay for an hour of service from Leep1 to assist with their costs, including travel to and from the café, uniforms and using training materials such as Kahoot
- £20 will help to pay for a DBS check for one of our volunteers
- £50 will help to fund translation services and producing publicity materials in community languages

About the Leeds 10K
The Leeds 10K run is organised by Run For All. It was set up by late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. Jane set it up whilst fundraising after being diagnosed with an incurable cancer. Her work has seen a number of runs and marathons set up across the country, including many around the Leeds area.
Charities such as ourselves take part in events like the Leeds 10K to raise vital funds for free services supporting people across the city.
