Team Skippers prepare for 10k Charity Run

Ataxia UK - Caring today, researching for tomorrow

Skipton Business Finance has specially assembled 'Team Skippers', made up of 10 SBF employees and guests, to participate in the Jane Tomlinson Leeds 10k Corporate Challenge in July this year.

Attracting over 10,000 runners every year, the popular northern charity race is now in its seventh year.

It has so far helped to raise many millions of pounds for both valuable local and national causes through the support of those who have ran the race.

UPDATE: Thanks to all your kind donations, we raised more than £1,000 for the charity!

Our charity: Ataxia UK

Our team will run on behalf of Ataxia UK, a charity offering help and support for people suffering from Friedreich's and Cerebellar Ataxia.

Ataxia is the name given to a group of neurological disorders that affect balance, coordination and speech. Around 10,000 adults in the UK have a type of ataxia and Ataxia UK is currently funding research to find out how many children have the condition.

Unfortunately there is no cure, however Ataxia UK is funding a wide range of research projects to try to find treatments that can help ataxia, and ultimately to find a cure.

Please help our cause

Ataxia UK is entirely funded by the money fundraisers generate so please be kind enough to donate to our very worthy cause.

Any amount will help and it all adds up... so please do donate!
