Owls back Team Weston Park ahead of the Sheffield 10K

Sheffield Wednesday defender Liam Palmer and midfielder David Jones are encouraging everyone to join Team Weston Park ahead of the Sheffield 10k.


The race returns to the steel city on Sunday 24th September after its debut year in 2016. The route will start and finish in the city centre, taking in Arundel Gate, Ecclesall Road and Endcliffe Vale Road close to the Botanical Gardens.


Owls academy product Palmer said: “We’re very happy to be supporting Weston Park, it’s a charity the club has worked closely with over the years.


“We’ve had the chance to see the facility during our Blue and White Christmas Day visits, so we know the great work that goes on there and how important it is to help that work continue and grow.”


Former Burnley man Jones added: “The money raised goes towards a brilliant cause and one that we have been fortunate enough to see for ourselves during our visits.


“The 10k is going to be a big event in the city, so it would be great to see people backing a fantastic local charity in Weston Park.”


Gemma Noon, Community Fundraiser at Weston Park Cancer Charity, said: “We are delighted that Sheffield Wednesday are supporting Team Weston Park at the Sheffield 10K. We are so grateful to everyone who is running for us and we will be there on the big day, to spur our supporters on!”


By lacing up your trainers and joining Team Weston Park you will help raise vital funds which go Beyond the Treatment, delivering huge improvements to inpatient facilities set to benefit thousands of cancer patients and their families each year. Working in partnership with the NHS, the new wards will benefit from improvements to the environment, wifi, smart TVs and specialist lighting to ensure patients get a better night’s sleep giving them the strength to fight cancer.


Everyone who signs up to run for Weston Park Cancer Charity will get an exclusive Team Weston Park running top, access to fundraising materials and support.
