Despite still being nearly four weeks away, the KPMG Promenade Relay has already beaten last year’s significant success, with sixty-seven teams enrolled and over £9,000 already raised for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and its mission to beat blood cancers.
Now in its second year, the event will be taking place on Friday 13th June and will see competitors of varying abilities running the 10km Douglas Promenade course in teams of either 2 or 4. Event organiser Paul Cawley, of KPMG, commented on how 2014 is set to be different from last year: “It’s really great to see so many teams from across the Island signing up for the event, both because it means we’ll have a fun day and because it means more support for this worthy cause. This year, with prizes for fancy dress as well as fastest time, it should be a really entertaining day for both runners and spectators.”
The event is sponsored by The Claremont, ILS, Shoprite, Appleby, Barclays, RL360, Richmond Travel, Microgaming and the Douglas Development Partnership. Participants will also collect their own fundraising money in aid of KPMG’s chosen charity of the year, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, an organisation dedicated to delivering patient benefits throughout the UK and Isle of Man.
