Brighton Marathon Charity Places
« on: October 06, 2011, 08:20:11 PM »

Hi All, If anyone missed out on London and Brighton, and still fancies a turn at a big city marathon next spring, we were sent this from the Porchlight Charity. Minimum sponsorship required is only £500.   

Porchlight is offering guaranteed places in the Brighton Marathon 2012 and we are looking for runners to raise vital funds to support our work in Kent.   

By becoming part of the Porchlight Team runners will have the opportunity to take part in one of the most popular events in the UK running calendar, while making a real difference to the most isolated and excluded people in their own community. The minimum sponsorship target for this event is £500. 

Porchlight helps vulnerable and homeless people across Kent to get their lives back on track and fulfill their potential. We provide rough sleeper support, supported accommodation and homelessness prevention services. Last year we helped over 2,300 people to change their lives for the better. 

Please see the poster https://www.thanetroadrunners.org.uk/downloads/717/BrightonMarathonPoster_LR.pdf or contact on 01227 760078 or email us at getinvolved@porchlight.org.uk.

If you would like to find out more about the charity and our work in the local area please check out our website www.porchlight.org.uk

Another chance for charity places, if anyone is interested...

Would it be possible to inform your members of our charity guaranteed places for the 2012 Bath Half Marathon and Edinburgh Marathon.

Research Autism aims to improve the quality of life for people with autism and for those around them by commissioning, carrying out and supporting high quality, independent research into interventions for people with autism and their families. We are looking for runners who would be willing to raise a minimum sponsorship of £500 for the Bath Half Marathon and £750 for the Edinburgh Marathon. In return we will provide you with constant support throughout your training and fundraising experience.  For more information please look at our website, www.researchautism.net, or contact us on 02034903091 or marathon@researchautism.net.

Marathon Charity Places

Hi all, if anyone is interested in a marathon charity place….. I did have another but I’ve lost the email!
 
I am writing from a children's charity called The Outward Bound Trust. One of our biggest fundraising events is the London Marathon. I was wondering if anyone in the club would be interested in running in the London Marathon for us. As a Virgin London Marathon charity we have been allocated a large number of places some of which are still available. You can visit www.outwardboundtrust.org.uk/marathon for marathon details. The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that aims to unlock the potential in young people through discovery and adventure in the wild. For more information on us you can go to www.outwardbound.org.uk.  If anyone would be interested in running for us could you please have them send an email to marathon@outwardbound.org.uk. Thank you.

And from Ian, who ran for Kent Association of the Blind last year - I am looking to fill a couple of spaces we have for this year’s Brighton Marathon on 15th April. We are keen to support our charity runners and we will provide: Running vests; Runners Evenings, with the opportunity to speak to experienced marathon runners, receive your KAB goody bag and meet our other charity runners; Fundraising materials, sponsorship forms and ideas; Press coverage in the local newspapers; Entry to the dedicated charity village at the start and end of the race.On the day itself, KAB staff and volunteers come along to cheer you throughout the course, as well as thank you personally at the end. We have a table in the charity tents and this is a good place to meet your family afterwards, cool off in the shade, and recover and reflect on the amazing feat you have just achieved! We will pay your registration fee but in light of the fantastic amount of money which our 2011 team raised (with one runner raising well over £1000!), we ask each member of team KAB to raise a minimum of £400, although obviously we hope you will raise as much as possible for our charity to enable us to continue supporting blind and partially sighted people across Kent to lead independent lives. Please mail: chrissie.keeley@kab.org.uk.
