Sport Relief Mile 2012 - Go the extra mile. Organise one!
Sport Relief will be back from Friday 23rd to 25th March 2012 and you can be a part of it.
It’s going to be bigger and better than ever before and, once again, the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile will sit right at the heart of it all. On Sunday 25th March hundreds of Mile events will take place up and down the country, with hundreds of thousands of people taking part.
Sport Relief are on the lookout for people just like you to bring Sport Relief to their town or village by organising a Mile event. Not only is organising a Mile great fun and a fantastic way to raise money for Sport Relief, it also brings a few perks along with it, as Ros Lennon, organiser of The Bishop’s Stortford Silver Leys Mile agrees:
"Hosting a Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile allowed the rugby club to really feel part of the larger national campaign. It was a great way to bring the whole community together and also brought new people to the club. It was good to be able to showcase our facility
and we also used the day to promote the club to potential new
members both adults and children!"
To organise a Mile, you’ll need:
- A venue that’s available on Sunday 25th March
- A route that offers Milers the choice of doing 1, 3 or 6 miles
- A team of volunteers to help you on the day
And that’s more or less it.
Sport Relief will be with you every step of the way providing you with promotional materials to help spread the word locally, a box of tricks packed with goodies for event day, advice and support whenever you need it, and they will even handle everything to do with entering people into your Mile!
So join the nation in celebrating the UK’s biggest year of sport and organise a Mile in your local community.
