Willie Walsh, British Airway's Chief Executive, has put September 25th in his diary and has sent us the following letter:

 

"Iím proud that the 29th annual World Airline Road Race festival will be hosted by the British Airways Athletics Club in London in the week of 25th September 2010.

 

Iím delighted that BA staff are stepping forward to organise an event which not only acts to bring people together in the pursuit of sport and friendship, but has the ultimate goal of raising money for charity.

 

The event will be raising funds for Dreamflight which each year provides holidays of a lifetime for seriously ill and disabled children. The charity was originally founded by serving British Airways flying staff and remains close to the heart of British Airways.

 

The World Airline Road Race is the largest event of its kind and offers promotional benefits for any supporting company. The organising team have my support, and I would hope that they can rely on yours also. Please contact them if you need any further information.

Kind regards,

 

Willie Walsh

British Airways Chief Executive"
