Having taken part in Parkrunathons previously and finding them to be a running calendar highlight I am honoured to be hosting one this year in support of IF U CARE SHARE foundation.
The event will involve buses full of 65 runners and supporters taking on up to 8.5 parkruns ticking off the miles with smiles (hopefully!). They will be joined by supporters and other runners throughout the day at each event.
Those that are unable to tick off all 8.5 in a day will be able to complete the figure as a personal virtual challenge throughout the month of June.
Parkrunathon 2019 - 8.5 = marathon distance
Having witnessed the devastating effects on individuals and families who have suffered mental ill health, lost loved ones to suicide and recently spent time volunteering for if u care share I am motivated to make our Parkrunathon something that can make a difference by spreading awareness and raising funds for this worthwhile local charity.
Charity lead Shirley is an inspiration and you can see what a difference she and the team have made to local families and beyond, lobbying parliament and meeting royalty to spread the word and campaign for funding and support to help people in crisis and those affected by suicide.
We also hope to promote the positive effects physical exercise like running and volunteering at parkrun events can have on mental well-being
Your donation will help continue the great work of this charity whose 3 main aims are prevention, intervention and support of those bereaved by suicide.
Together we can make a difference and every penny really does count.
