Get exercise while funding hospice
AS an athlete I’m always trying to encourage friends and family to join me and take part in exercise.
This summer why not take part in a fun run with your family and friends whilst raising money for a fantastic charity.
Get your trainers on and head down to Battersea Park for this year’s RBC Race for the Kids on Sunday 7 June 2015.
The 5k family fun run helps to raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
You don’t have to be an Olympian, everyone from young children to grandparents can take part – walk or run, and it’s up to you.
You can take part individually or in a team and there’s after race activities and entertainment for all.
I really enjoyed taking part last year; it was really inspiring to see people come together in support of the hospital.
Last year, over 6,000 people joined in, raising more than £800,000.
This year the charity needs to raise even more money to go towards providing new state of the art buildings and facilities for patients and their families.
Registering is simple, just visit www.raceforthekids.co.uk. The website includes useful tips and ideas to help your fundraising reach its full potential.
So please do something great this year and sign up to this amazing event.
The money you raise will help Great Ormond Street Hospital to make sure that more very sick children get the very best care that they deserve.
