Crewe RRT assists Neuro Muscular Centre with charity run.

On Saturday 27th of June, 1500 people gathered to run a 5km course around the picturesque grounds of Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire. This was a Run or Dye Charity Event held in conjunction with Help for Heroes and supported by The Neuro Muscular Centre.
The Neuro Muscular Centre is a national charity based in Winsford, Cheshire (who were celebrating having been established for 25 years) and were the chosen local charity partner for the Run or Dye event.

The Neuro Muscular Centre required 80 volunteers to assist on the day and having found just 20 themselves the RRT stepped in and provided 60 more to ensure they could carry out the event successfully. In the words of Amy from the NMC ‘without the support of RRT we definitely couldn’t have done today!’

The volunteers on the day were involved with car parking assistance, registering and marshalling of runners, sale of merchandise, wash room coordination, helping at the start and finish lines, handing out water and of course throwing coloured dye at the start line and each of the four stations located every kilometre around the track.

Brian Adcock the Race Director of Run or Dye UK conveyed his ‘heart felt thanks’ to the ’team from RRT and the NMC.’   The support was greatly appreciated and commented ‘without this volume of people something like this could actually fall fairly flat’.   Brian added that he thought it was ‘absolutely brilliant – couldn’t have done the event without you.’

      The dye certainly added a fun side to it yes! But it was great just to be involved in raising funds and the profile of these very worthy charities!
      The event was run by the Crewe team supported by volunteers from Stafford, Chester, Shrewsbury and Newtown because of the numbers required.
