The money raised from the event will go to some great local charities like the Midlands Air Ambulance and Compton Hospice, so we’re really pleased to be able to do our bit.
(PRWEB UK) 4 March 2013
Wolverhampton-based water cooler supplier Angel Springs has announced that it will sponsor an upcoming charity marathon event.
The Carvers Wolverhampton City Marathon 2013 was officially launched earlier this month (February) and will take place on September 1.
Angel Springs has previously donated water to the event. However, this year’s charity run will be the first the water cooler company has sponsored.
The Carvers Wolverhampton Marathon was established in 1998 by Roy Carver and Ivan Savage. It has proven to be very successful, raising nearly a quarter of a million pounds for local charities.
A number of new races have been added this year. Fundraisers will be able to take on the challenge of the full marathon, the half marathon, a 10k event, or a selection of relay events.
Event organisers have also doubled the distance of the cycle route – to 20k.
John Murphy, Angel Springs’ commercial director said: “We’ve helped the Carvers Wolverhampton City Marathon with donations before, but this year we decided to go the extra mile by securing sponsorship.
“The money raised from the event will go to some great local charities like the Midlands Air Ambulance and Compton Hospice, so we’re really pleased to be able to do our bit.
“Plus, our head office is in Wolverhampton, so the event’s particularly special to us.
“We wish all participants the best of luck.”
Angel Springs is a keen supporter of charitable organisations. It’s donated thousands of sports cap water bottles to fundraising events and thousands of pounds to charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.
