Spire Cheshire Hospital is delighted to be title sponsor of the English Half Marathon again this year.
Mr Andy Eadsforth, Hospital Director commented ‘We sponsored the EHM for the first time last year and were really excited to be part of a great community event which not only brought together local people but also attracted visitors from around the country into the town.
We were so impressed with the day – from the organisation for both runners and sponsors to the quality of the course, and even the weather was great! So we’ve not only agreed to take the title sponsorship for 2012 but for a further 3 years. We’re hoping that the Olympics will inspire even more people to take part this year and join in a truly great community day.’
Spire Cheshire will again be involving it’s hospital team and consultants in the event – some will be running and raising money for their favourite charities, others will be volunteering with marshalling or manning water stations on the day.
Spire Cheshire’s expert Orthopaedic Consultants and Physiotherapists see many patients with injuries sustained through sporting activities so they’ll also be able to offer advice to the runners on how to avoid injury, get fit and stay healthy during training for this year’s English Half Marathon.’
