Got your place in the London Marathon? Or maybe you’re doing some Parkruns. Whatever run or walk you’re intending to do, how about you make it extra-special by supporting families and children who could really do with your help? Run for a great charity. It’ll give you that extra bit of motivation. By raising money for Befriend a Family, you’ll be making a massive difference. With your help, we can support more and more families who are in need. The need for our work is growing. Poverty and the effects of poverty are becoming more and more apparent. The emotional cost for children experiencing hardship can last a life-time. Befriend a Family depends heavily on donations from people like you to fund our work with families. Everyone needs help at some time in their life… please do something amazing and help us to help others. We’re a small charity, so you help will really make a difference.
If you let us know where and when you will be taking part in an event, we will support you across social media and we might even be able to kit you out with a snazzy t-shirt with our logo for you to keep. We’ll be behind you all the way (well, we won’t literally run behind you, but you know what we mean!).
Run like the wind
If you’re itching to get out on the road, pavement, field or running track, but you’re not sure of a suitable event, head over to Run Britain to find out when your next run is.
If you want to know a bit more about what we do, head over to our imaginatively titled ‘What We Do‘ page.
What’s stopping you?
So, you’ve checked out the running schedules. You’ve done a few stretches. Are you going to sign up for a run? What’s stopping you? The sooner you sign up to a run, the more training time you’ve got. We’re as excited about your progress as you are, so let us know how you’re getting on and the link to you fundraising page and we’ll shout about it loud and proud.
