Meanwhile, event organisers are set to launch the Pronto Paints Schools Wellbeing Challenge 2021 on Friday 15 October.
School children from across Chesterfield are set to take part in the event at Queen’s Park which promotes health and wellbeing among young people in our area.
Daniel Thompson, Head of Physical Education at Brookfield Community School, one of the schools taking part, said: “As a community school, when we were given the opportunity to be part of the first ever running festival to link with the Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10K, we did not hesitate.
“We are excited to be able to give our students the chance to participate in an event that not only challenges them, but is great for their health and well-being. The fact that it is supporting such a worthwhile charitable event that such as the Chesterfield 10K that lots of our school community will be engaging in is even more reason to take part. MLS have been amazing in the support they have provided and in setting up. I can’t thank them enough.”
David Beckford, Managing Director of Pronto Paints, added: “We are very proud to sponsor this event. Anything which encourages children to focus on exercise and wellbeing is fantastic.
“In addition to this event, we are headline sponsors of the Pronto Paints Wellbeing Challenge, which is a great way for local businesses to join together and raise money for local charities.
“We are hoping to make the schools challenge an annual event and hopefully it will even bigger and better next year.”
