Pink Link Ltd Sponsor Annual Trail Run


The Pink Link Ltd was once again, proud sponsor of the Kirkwood Hospice annual 10k trail run for the fifth year running.

The 5k and 10k event, which took place on Sunday 4th September at Leeds Road Sports Complex, saw over 300 runner’s lace up and take part in the leafy course.

The event, held in memory of Joanne Philpott, continues to go from strength to strength, with the runners testing themselves in the timed race whilst helping to raise vital funds for Kirkwood Hospice.

Vicki Davenport, Managing Director at The Pink Link Ltd, commented: “Joanne was my best friend for 30 years, so when she passed it was an extremely difficult time. The trail run has become a great thing for us to do in her memory, it brings families and friends together to run the event or help out. Being involved is quite emotional, but the run helps us to keep Joanne’s memory alive”.

A number of family and friends of The Pink Link Ltd took part including the company mascot, Pinky Lynx. The Woodman Inn also sponsored the event and support was provided on the day by Shepley Spring and many volunteers.

The Pink Link Ltd is already looking forward to next year’s event.
