Smile A Mile Charity Walk raises over £5k for Chiefs Foundation


Over £5,000 has been added to the Exeter Chiefs Foundation coffers following the highly successful Smile A Mile Walk.

Helping to raise vital funds for the Foundation, the 200 walkers proudly took up the challenge of working their way around the picturesque 10-mile course that started and finished at Sandy Park.

Building on the success of previous years, once the walk was completed participants were then able to enjoy some well-earned refreshments before then settling in to watch the Premiership Rugby Cup encounter between the Chiefs and visiting Bath Rugby.

Exeter Rugby Club Deputy Chief Executive and Foundation Trustee, Keiron Northcott said: "On behalf of the Exeter Chiefs Foundation, I wish to congratulate each and every walker who took part in this year's Smile A Mile Walk. Again we had a terrific response from those involved and the money that they have helped to raise we know will help to make a difference to so many different people.

"Each year we are seeing this event grow in numbers and we are confident that next year's event will be even bigger and better."

The event was supported by SW Comms, Santander, Northcott Beaton, Land Rover Experience, Chunk and Heineken.
