Smile for Joel – Run for Joel

From Howard Court,

A 5K RACE AND 3K fun run is being held this summer on Sunday September 11th at Sandwell Valley to raise money for a charity and victim support set up in memory of three members of the same Sandwell Family who were killed in the Tunisian  terrorist attack. 19 year old Joel Richards , Uncle Adrian and grandfather Patrick Evans all died last June when a gunman opened fire on tourists on a beach in Tunisia killing 38 people

Joel was just 19 and was a  highly respected young football referee and sporting Ambassador in Sandwell ,with a love of running  The Smile for Joel Charity set up by the Men’s Family and working with Sandwell leisure trust and Victim support The Run For Joel run has been set up ,with proceeds being shared between the smile for Joel charity and victim support .

I am writing to you today to ask the support of Tipton Harriers in having the event info on the CLUB  web page  and a general push if possible  with your distance coaches  to help publicise the event through your web site  In memory of a fine young Man

IT’S A WEEK BEFORE THE MIDLAND RELAYS  ON A VERY SIMILAR COURSE – SO WOULD BE GOOD PREP RACE AND MAYBE CLUB TRIAL FOR TEAMS .
