Will Luton and Daniel Twomey of the award winning studio Mobile Pie (developers of B-Boy Beats and My Star) today announced they would participate in the 2011 Bristol 10K in support of the UK games industry charity GamesAid.

Mobile Pie Running 10K for Charity GamesAid“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to raise money and awareness for what is an extremely important cause. It’s going to be an arduous and grueling ten kilometers with training starting today, so hope people give very generously,” said Luton.

A Just Giving page has been set up at http://www.justgiving.com/mobilepierunners which allows people to quickly and easily sponsor the pair, with 100% of donations going straight to GamesAid.

GamesAid Chairman of Trustees Andy Payne added: “GamesAid has always strived to be inclusive and applauds all those members who give their time to raise money for the good causes that members’ vote for. Will and Dan are taking on the Bristol 10k in May in the name of GamesAid and need all the support the video games industry can muster. Please support them, it is a bold and brave thing that they do!”.

The run, organised by Bristol City Council, will take place on Sunday 15 May 2011 and loops around some Bristol’s most delightful scenery.
