Students at Doncaster Deaf Trust are in the running to get a charity boost thanks to this year’s Doncaster 10k race.

The Trust has been named as one of three charities that runners signing up to this year’s race, in November, can choose to support.

Alexis Johnson, executive principal of Doncaster Deaf Trust said: “We are extremely pleased to have been chosen as a charity partner for this year’s Doncaster 10k.

“Doncaster Deaf Trust is celebrating its 190th anniversary and our staff, pupils and students have been finding lots of different ways to mark the occasion. We are sure that we’ll get lots of support from our team for this event.

“Any runners who choose to support our inspirational students with their fundraising efforts will be helping us to develop a Wellbeing Room and fitness area. This area will enable our students to better express themselves through dance and fitness activities. The Wellbeing Room will also provide a dedicated space for students to talk about their individual wellbeing.

“Runners who choose to support us will be invited to the Trust to see the difference this new facility will make.”

The race, which takes place on Sunday 29th November will start at the Doncaster Deaf Trust on Ledger Way before finishing at the Racecourse. 

Jonathan Frary, from Curly’s Athletes, who run the Doncaster 10k said: “We’re so please to be working with the Deaf Trust on the Doncaster 10k 2020! 

“We've been so surprised with the variety of great work that the Trust supports and the amazing spirit of everyone we’ve met. Through the event we hope to share stories about the work that they do with our runners alongside raising some money to support the development of their well-being centre, a cause close to our hearts.”

Registration is now open via www.doncaster10k.co.uk/running-for-charity and there is an option to select Doncaster Deaf Trust as a recipient of any fundraising efforts.
