29 Apr Run for charity – Get one of our guaranteed charity running places for two iconic running events
A disabled kid’s charity is calling for runners for two iconic sporting fundraisers.
The Freddie Farmer Foundation in Bromley, which provides intensive physiotherapy programmes for disabled children, is looking for participants to take on the ASICS London 10K run and the Virgin Money London Marathon.
Charity centre manager, Karen Smith, said: “We’re urging the local community to really get behind the cause and to sign up to run on our behalf. There’s no registration fee to take part but a minimum sponsorship to cover our costs will apply.”
The charity costs £130,000 to run each year. It does not receive any funding from the NHS, thus relies on therapy fees and fundraising to cover costs.
The ASICS London 10 kilometre run takes place on Sunday, July 25.
The route passes some of London’s top landmarks, and past the True Geographical Centre of London, down closed Regent Street, the Strand and Embankment.
A minimum fundraising pledge of £200 is required.
The London Marathon, starting in Blackheath and finishing at The Mall, takes place on Sunday, October 3 – the application deadline is July 16 at 17:00.
A minimum fundraising pledge of £1500 is required.
