On the 15th October 2017, 15 truly generous people are going to take part in the The Cabbage Patch 10 and raise money for MDS UK.
The Race Director of Cabbage Patch 10 is our dear friend and supporter, the amazing Caitlin Limmer.
Continued thanks to Caitlin for her extraordinary support – on behalf of the charity and all MDS patients and their families. You are making a tremendous difference to our work, the support we are able to offer and the general awareness of Myelodysplastic Syndromes!
Caitlin is founder of The Bearcat Running Club, and also Race director of The Turks Head 10k. She was awarded a Richmond Council Community award in 2014 and The Prime Minister’s Point of Light Award in October 2015. The Cabbage Patch 10 is dear to Caitlin’s heart, being the first race she ever ran after having been seriously ill.
She says in our Facebook Group:
This year we are as ever supporting the fantastic Clarendon School, and also MDS Patient Support Group - based at Kings Hospital.
MDS - STANDS FOR MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROME.
THROUGH OUR RACE WE ARE HOPING THIS YEAR TO REALLY HELP MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROME AND MDS PATIENT SUPPORT GROUP BE ROCKETED OUT THERE INTO THE WORLD, SO THAT PEOPLE DON'T HAVE TO ASK AGAIN WHAT MDS IS.
Chase Buchanan Estate Agents's is also running the The Cabbage Patch 10 Mile Run for MDS UK Patient Support Group!
We hugely thank the Chase Buchanan runners: Lauren Hayler, Colin Deer, Michael Peacock, John Sawyer, Lianne Gregory, Sam Smith, Nadeem Younus, Manuela Bregiel, Katie Wilson, Anna Masters & Chris Brookshaw
Last year we had great support and managed to raise a total of £3,500 for the MDS UK Patient Support Group. We hope to go over this amazing sum this year.
The Cabbage Patch 10 has been going for at least the last 35 years – so is almost as old as the London Marathon - and is tremendously popular.
It is one of the flattest, most scenic, ten mile races in the country aimed at runners of all standards on roads and towpaths. Starting in King Street, Twickenham, the route crosses the Thames at Kingston Bridge and Richmond Bridge, and runs along the Riverside to finish on the drive in front of the York House Civic Building in Twickenham.
