RESCHEDULED: the parkrun in aid of The Brick

With the support of parkrun and Wigan Athletic, The Brick ‘5k for 5k’ run has been rescheduled due to poor weather to  Saturday the 12th January at 9am at Haigh Hall.

We’re looking for 100 supporters to run or walk the 5k course in their favourite festive jumper or full Santa suit and help us raise £5000 to help rebuild lives across the Wigan borough – that’s just £50 per supporter.

Thanks to Wigan Latics, the first 100 sign-ups will receive a pair of match tickets for the Wigan Athletic vs Peterborough game on Saturday, January 12th. Two hospitality tickets will be awarded to the supporter who raises the most funds.

Janet Mitchell, Fundraising and Business Engagement Manager for The Brick, said: “We are so grateful to the volunteers of parkrun and Wigan Athletic for supporting this year’s 5k for 5k run. We are urging the people of Wigan and Leigh to get behind the event to make sure no person is left behind this year.”

Jonathan Jackson, Wigan Athletic Chief Executive, said: “The support shown to The Brick by the club’s fans so far has been outstanding. We’re delighted to support the 5k for 5k to raise vital funds for people who face poverty or even homelessness in Wigan and Leigh.”
