Anna’s Hope 900 Challenge
In support of Peterborough Celebrates campaign to mark 900 years of the city's cathedral, Anna’s Hope has set a challenge to provide 900 weeks of specialist neuro-rehabilitation.
To help Anna’s Hope achieve this goal and make a difference to the lives of children with brain tumours in the region, the charity is challenging schools, businesses, families and friends to run and raise funds in the Anna’s Hope Fun 5k Fun Run or the half marathon in the Perkins Great Eastern Run.
To support the Anna’s Hope 900 Challenge all you need to do is run and raise at least £30, which will fund one week’s specialist neuro-rehabilitation support for one child with a brain tumour.
Everyone who signs up to run and commits to raise at least £30 (one week’s funding) will receive an Anna’s Hope t-shirt to wear on the day.
Of course, you can raise funds for more than one week to help Anna’s Hope reach the 900-week target e.g. £90 will fund three weeks’ support and £150 will fund 5 weeks’ support.
Schools 900 Challenge
Every child who raises at least one week’s funding (£30) will receive a certificate. Schools can set a target number of weeks and children can run together with teachers and parents.
Every school that raises funds for at least 10 weeks of support (£300) will receive an Anna’s Hope ‘Schools 900 Challenge’ trophy.
Business 900 Challenge
Run together with your work colleagues and set a target number of weeks. Every business that raises funds for at least 15 weeks of support (£450) will receive an Anna’s Hope ‘Business 900 Challenge’ trophy.
All entrants in the Anna’s Hope 5k 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 is £7 for under 16's and £12 for adults.
