Event organisers SEQOL Community Foundation has announced its commitment to running the event for the second time in October this year, but is calling on more Swindon businesses to step foreward with sponsorship and donations
Katie Taylor-Neale, Event Director: “SEQOL Community Foundation, the charitable arm of SEQOL are keen to support the Swindon Half Marathon as a key community event which encourages people to be active and supports their well-being. The success of the 2015 event came from the involvement of local businesses and individuals, without them this event could not happen.
“SEQOL Community Foundation will continue with our coordinating and project management role and wish to build upon the success of the 2015 Half Marathon. The event will be dependent on the generous sponsorship and donations from Swindon community.
“Last year we had fantastic support from companies and individuals, including financial support, donated products, specialist advice and of course all the fantastic volunteers, all of which made the Half such a great community event.
“This year we will be looking for further funding and support from an even wider group to make the Swindon Half a success and to continue to benefit local people and charities.
“We’ll be announcing details of the 2016 event and opportunities for sponsorship and involvement soon, so watch this space.”
