Running for Charity

We are contacted a lot by organisations asking if our club members would like to run for their charity. Here are the current opportunities:

London Marathon

Location: London

Date: 22nd April 2018

Contact: Serena.Norman@kids.org.uk

Serena from registered children’s disability charity KIDS contacted us regarding places for the 2018 London Marathon. They offer a comparatively low fundraising target and registration fee and provide VIP treatment for all our team members. More information can be found at: https://www.kids.org.uk/Event/london-marathon-2018

 

Brighton Marathon

Location: Brighton

Date: 15th April 2018

Contact: nick.cross@st-johns.co.uk

St. John's School and College based in Kemptown, Brighton, & Firle Road, Seaford, is looking to fill 10 Brighton Marathon 2018 places.

All we ask is that you try your hardest to raise £750 via a Just Giving page to support our amazing young people. 

We will work with you every step of the way to achieve your fundraising goal and help with training too! 

Last year, with just 6 runners, we raised over £4,600 for young people with learning disabilities, special needs, communication difficulties and rare diagnoses.
