Wigan Athletic Community Trust are looking to enter a team of runners into this year’s Wigan 10k to raise vital funds for the charity’s Every Player Counts disability sports programme.
The project sees coaches from the Community Trust deliver sports sessions in schools, colleges and at Wigan Youth Zone on a weekly basis, with the Trust working with more than 600 people with disabilities across Wigan borough as part of the scheme.
In addition, the programme also supports the club’s junior and adult disability football teams who compete in the Greater Manchester Ability Counts Football League.
Fans wishing to run with the 10k with Community Trust staff will receive free entry into the race and will also be given a free Latics t-shirt to take part in.
Each runner will be asked to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship for Every Player Counts, and the person who raises the most money will win hospitality for two people to a home game courtesy of the Community Trust.
