“Its vision of promoting healthy lifestyles works alongside our own aims to encourage people to get involved in physical activity and to achieve a personal goal, whatever their ability.”

ViiSana provides a wide range of personal and business protection products that cover life, serious illness and health insurance.

Paul Ollerton, the firm’s managing director, said he was “extremely proud” to be involved with Run For All’s events, which are part of the lasting legacy of the inspirational Leeds fundraiser Jane Tomlinson.

Jane raised £1.8m for good causes before her death from cancer aged 43 in 2007.
