CAFOD are holding their 31st annual Fun Run in December, organiser Mike Dooling is asking for your support to come on down and join the fun!
Mike has been organising running events in Merseyside for over 20 years and has been actively involved in organising the CAFOD Fun Run since 1996 after following in the footsteps of his school PE teacher, Mike Merriman, who has been organising the Fun Run since it began 32 years ago!
Mike Dooling said, “I’ve always organised athletics events and I am passionate about the work that CAFOD do. I offered to get involved 20 years ago and have helped out ever since! Mike Merriman taught me when I was at St Edward’s in West Derby, and it was great to work with him again. The Fun Run is a fantastic event for all of the family to join after Christmas. We have two start times, 12.30 for families and 1.15 for keen runners who want to hit their Christmas personal best! Please come and join the fun!”
The CAFOD Fun Run takes place on 27th December. Prizes for the best fancy dress, amazing jazz band, The Rioters will be providing entertainment, and hot food and drink will be on sale to warm you up!

All proceeds from the event will go towards the Syrian Refugee Crisis, where CAFOD are working through trusted church partners in Syria to get vital aid and supplies to vulnerable people.
