Run­ning to give School Aid a boost

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

FUN FOR ALL: Fam­i­lies tak­ing part in last year’s Fam­ily Fun Run and Walk in Ger­rards Cross FAM­I­LIES are be­ing en­cour­aged to put their best feet for­ward when a fundrais­ing walk and run takes place.

School Aid, a char­ity based in Hedger­ley which sup­ports the ad­vance­ment of ed­u­ca­tion in Africa by pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tional ma­te­ri­als to schools in dis­ad­van­taged com­mu­ni­ties, is or­gan­is­ing the event.

The Fam­ily Fun Run and Walk takes place on Sun­day, July 5, and in­volves par­tic­i­pants tak­ing part in ei­ther a 2km or 5km course.

The longer route starts at Bul­strode Park, in Ger­rards Cross, be­fore pass­ing through Hedger­ley Green, and the shorter walk does part of the same course.

Dogs on leads are wel­come on both routes, with en­try cost­ing £10 for an in­di­vid­ual, £8 per per­son for a team and £18 for a fam­ily.

The event took place for the first time last year and proved to be suc­cess­ful.

Jane Perry, a vol­un­teer with School Aid, said: “We have kept the en­try fees low so ev­ery­one can take part.

“Last year was the first such event and with spon­sor­ship we dou­bled our in­come.”
