Anna’s Hope Schools Challenge
Local children’s charity Anna’s Hope is challenging school children to make a difference to the lives of children with brain tumours in the Anna’s Hope Fun Run.
Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children in the UK and for those who survive most need specialist rehabilitation. By running and raising funds for Anna’s Hope they can help make a difference to a child in the region with a brain tumour.
£30 funds a child’s specialist rehabilitation for one week.
£125 funds a child’s specialist rehabilitation for one month.
Each school child who signs up for the Anna’s Hope Fun Run and wants and raise at least £30, will receive a free Anna’s Hope T-shirt to wear on the day. Family members and teachers can also sign up and join.
Why not set a goal as a school? 50 pupils, teachers and family members each raising £30 will help a child for one year.
The Anna’s Hope’ Schools Challenge Cup, sponsored byChromaSport and Trophies will be awarded to the school which raises the most money for Anna’s Hope - and there will be a cup and £50 gift voucher for the ‘Top Boy’ and ‘Top Girl’ fundraiser.
All entrants in the Anna’s Hope Fun Run will receive a running number and a chip timing device so we can record your accurate time and the results will be published on the race website the next day. All those who complete the course will also receive a unique medal designed especially for the event.
Runners for Anna’s Hope are also invited to the Anna’s Hope marquee after run for a celebration party, sponsored by Aldi.
This year the entrance fee for 16 year olds is £6.
