Sweat shed for char­ity

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph Sport -

The Rock­ing­ham Triathlon Club held the Rock­ing­ham Char­ity Cup last Sun­day with ath­letes work­ing up a sweat along the Rock­ing­ham Fore­shore for a wor­thy cause.

Orig­i­nally known as the Kira Cup, the char­ity event sees club mem­bers raise funds for a se­lected cause, and this year funds ben­e­fited the On My Feet Or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Club mem­bers took part in a 21.1km half-marathon event, as well as a 5km and a 10km fun run along the fore­shore.

Based on a com­mit­ment to run­ning, On My Feet is a not­for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion pro­vid­ing path­ways to ed­u­ca­tion and unemployment to men and women deal­ing with, or at risk of, home­less­ness.
