Investec Bank Limited has committed to a further three more years’ sponsorship of Guernsey’s annual 10K Fun Run, organised by Guernsey Mind.
The event promotes the link between physical and mental health and raises much-needed funds for Guernsey Mind. Entrants of all abilities, aged 16-years-old and over, can take part in what is now established as one of the Island’s most inclusive running events.
Brendan Stewart of Investec commented: "We are delighted to renew our sponsorship of this event. Despite the additional challenges of Covid-19 last year, the event attracted the largest ever sign up of runners, proving how valuable it is to the community.
At Investec we care profoundly about the physical and mental wellbeing not only of our staff, but of our partners, our clients and our community and this event embodies the positive benefits of exercise.
Maddy Diligent of Guernsey Mind added: "The Investec Guernsey Mind 10km Fun Run is one of our biggest and most enjoyable yearly events and is fast becoming a favourite for anyone looking for a fun and inclusive running event.
"We are delighted that Investec has agreed to sponsor the Fun Run for a further three years, their continued support means the 10k will remain a firm fixture in the community’s sporting calendar. In 2020 the event raised £12,000, which is currently being used to support the charities new therapy service."
This year event will take place on 12 September with entries opening shortly.
