Changing sketch reference

I am trying to run a sensitivity analysis between the length of a crank shaft and it's max_stress_vm. However when the simulation runs and the length is increased an extruded hole does not move along with it. I am just wondering if it is possible to make a sketch reference a difference point so that when the length is increased it maintains the same distance between its centre and the edge.

I want to ensure that the black circle is 10mm from the green co-ordinate system rather than being 100mm from the original co-ordinate system.

 

Thanks for any help.

Sure, in the sketch, simply add a dimension in the sketch from the coordinate system to the hole center.
