Miles for Men is a charity based in Hartlepool that raises money for those affected by cancer. They do this by holding fun runs across the region. With the money raised they help those affected by cancer with a whole host of things, including covering funeral costs, providing specialist equipment and even holding birthday parties and Christmas shopping trips. Miles for Men organised its first 5k fun run in 2012 and experienced unprecedented success as they raised over £40,000. Since then, Miles for Men have incredibly raised more than £255,000 to help those affected by cancer. After a record number of participants in 2017, Miles for Men are planning more big things in 2018.
It was in 2015 when Miles for Men made their first order here at Workwear Express. It was a huge order of around 2,000 garments in total. The order consisted of t-shirts, polo shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies. The garments were going to be worn at the several events put on by Miles for Men, but they were mainly going to be used for that year’s big fun run.
We did offer them some advice on our print and embroidery services as Miles for Men also wanted all of the garments personalised with the Miles for Men logo, as well as the logos of their sponsors, including Kicking Cancer and Help Supporting Families. Since that first order, Miles for Men have made several more and we are pleased that we kept everyone happy with our products and services at a fantastic charity.
