Sign up for 5k Fun Run
Last updated 28-Jul-10 15:43
The Trust's annual 5k Fun Run/Walk will take place this year on Sunday 3 October 2010 in Trent Park. Runners are advised to register as soon as possible, to avoid having to queue up for entrance on the morning of the race. Tickets cost £8 per person with no T-Shirt or £10 including a T-shirt.
Last year's Run attracted over 400 members of the public and raised nearly £12k for the Trust's Cancer Services. Following the buzz that was generated by the event at the time, an even larger participation is expected this year, with proceeds going towards the Trust's da Vinci Robot Fundraising Appeal.
The event begins at 10.30am, with a group warm-up session taking place a few minutes before. Last year's winner crossed the finish line in 20 minutes, but not everyone was there to push their limits. Many turned up simply to walk their dogs, push their prams or enjoy a Sunday morning stroll. Judging by the costumes on display, there were as many people taking part for a laugh as there were for any serious competitive running, and organisers expect the same fun-loving mix to be present among this year's participants.
To sign up for the Fun Run/Walk, contact Peter Butler, Fundraising Manager on 020 8375 1619 or email Peter.Butler@bcf.nhs.uk. You can enter alone or as part of a group. So professionals, invite your colleagues... parents, bring your children...and schoolchildren, bring your classmates. The more that take part the merrier, so let's get together for a good cause this October and banish those early autumn blues.
