REWARDS ON OFFER TO LIVERPOOL 10K RUNNERS
race is on to find local people prepared to run in the Liverpool 10K
race in a few months time and raise funds for a major charity as it
continues to search for cures for muscle disease, which can often
cause severe disability or, in many cases, can greatly shorten life
As part of its ‘Big Push’ 2007 appeal, the Regional Office of
the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is asking readers to enter the race
and help push up the awareness of muscle disease by getting
sponsored for running. In return, everyone who raises funds can
claim some great sportswear rewards and a top quality running vest
to show their support for the charity during the race.
Says Charles Horton, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign Regional
Fundraising Manager, “We need as many people as possible to
enter the Liverpool 10k and raise funds if we are going to beat this
disease. It’s a great way to help others and will help us push up
the amount we can spend on research. Why not join us in our Big Push
to find a cure for muscle disease”.
The Liverpool 10K race takes place on Sunday 7 October 2007,
starting at 10am. For an entry pack call the Muscular Dystrophy

Spiderman while being accompanied by the Spiderman theme tune!’
