Running is one of the simplest and most accessible ways of improving your health. That’s why Vitality has partnered with parkrun. Vitality is health and life insurance that rewards you for being healthy. By linking your Vitality account to your parkrun profile you can earn 5 Vitality points at parkrun by volunteering and 10 points for taking part.
Alzheimer’s Research UK, parkrun’s official charity partner, is the UK’s leading dementia research charity. Alongside parkrun, they’re encouraging people to lower their risk of developing dementia through regular exercise and raise money for crucial research to defeat dementia – a condition affecting 850,000 people across the UK today. As research experts, they fund world-class pioneering scientists at leading universities to find preventions, treatments and a cure for dementia.
parkrun has been a key player in promoting running as an accessible participation sport to the expanding community of runners. The parkrun model of local volunteers delivering weekly runs to people of all ages and abilities in their local community fits perfectly with the Intersport philosophy of bringing sport to the people. Together we look forward to encouraging more people to get their running shoes on.
We’re proud to partner with parkrun. Leeds Building Society was established over 140 years ago, and, like parkrun, was set up to improve the lives of its members. We help members save and have the home they want and support the local communities where our members and colleagues live and work. As a long-term partner with parkrun, we’ll be collaborating on a number of initiatives to help make parkrun accessible to more people, and to support a range of wider community projects.
