Sir Steve Redgrave and Olympic cycling gold medallist Chris Hoy were among those who helped raise more than £12,000 for a leukaemia charity at The David Lloyd Great Mile Run in Edinburgh.

Part of David Lloyd Leisure’s national mass participation programme aimed at getting ‘a million people, running a million miles, raising millions’, the Edinburgh run was the most successful yet in terms of funds raised. The run featured a number of celebrities including Scottish Rugby internationals Chris Paterson and Nathan Hines.

The money will go to the Anthony Nolan Trust, which directly saves the lives of hundreds of men, women and children by providing volunteer bone marrow donors from their register to those in need of a transplant. It aims to invest all the money from the Great Mile Run in the local communities where it was raised.

Each £70 raised will be used to inspire and recruit another, fit and healthy, individual to become a potential lifesaver by joining the bone marrow register.

The total raised in Edinburgh will mean at least 170 potential lifesavers can be added to the register, each will offer the 7,000 people currently waiting for a bone marrow transplant another chance of life.
