Entrants of the Brooks Run Doncaster 10k are being asked
to raise sponsorship for the British Heart Foundation's Mending
Broken Hearts Appeal.
Event organisers 'Metres to Miles' have teamed up with the British
Heart Foundation to raise funds for groundbreaking research that
could begin to literally 'mend broken hearts' in as little as ten
At the moment, there's no cure for a broken heart. Once your heart
muscle is damaged by a heart attack, it can never fully recover.

could be repaired.
Derek Spence, Chair of the Bawtry and Doncaster branch of the
British Heart Foundation said: "We are looking for anyone already
planning to run the Doncaster 10k to use it as an opportunity to
fundraise for the Mending Broken Hearts Appeal and help us to save
Julian Moorhouse, founder of Metres to Miles added: "We are
delighted to be supporting this research and will be making
information about the appeal available to runners as they register
The 10k road race is the latest event to be added to the region's
racing calendar and will include a commercial challenge as well as
a shorter community fun run alongside the main race on Sunday
