Our annual Fun Run is moving ever closer, Today marks 6 weeks until the big day.
The Fun Run takes place on Wednesday 27th December 2017 at Wavertree Athletics Centre, Wellington Road, Liverpool L15 4LE, with the run begining promptly at 1pm with registration open at midday . Please arrive early for the warm up and to soak up the atmosphere!
The CAFOD Fun Run is the perfect opportunity to burn off the Christmas calories, so please do encourage all your friends and family to grab their running/walking shoes and join other like-minded people in raising lots of money for those who need it most.
Please find below our Fun Run Flyer and sponsor form. There is a choice of three distances this year: 2km, 4km or 8km for you to run, walk or toddle, and feel free to bring the dog! It is £7 to register as an individual or £15 for a family. If you would like an electronic copy of these please let us know and we can send these to you.
Last year we raised £11,200 for the Ethiopia Food Crisis Appeal and this is making a huge difference! The sponsorship money came from only 28 of the 309 participants! Just imagine how much we would raise if every participant raised just a little, or made a small donation on the day! We would therefore encourage you, please do ask friends, family, parishioners and colleagues to sponsor you and send in your sponsor forms to us afterwards. The money raised really does go a long way to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
As always our wonderful Volunteer Committee are doing a brilliant job organising this event! Please do help them to make it a success. If you’re unable to participate but would like to donate or volunteer, we still need more help, so please call us at the CAFOD Liverpool Volunteer Centre on 0151 228 4028 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Liverpool Volunteer Centre is working towards becoming a Livesimply office, and therefore we would like to encourage people to use public transport if at all possible, we realise that for some people public transport won’t be possible, but you can plan your journey at http://www.traveline.info/ or you can visit the Mersey Travel website at http://www.merseytravel.gov.uk/travelling-around/timetables/Pages/default.aspx for bus and train timetables.
If you know for certain that you’ll be able to attend, please let us know, though this is not essential.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU for supporting CAFOD throughout the year. You truly make a difference that we greatly appreciate!
As we tweet about the event we will be using the #CAFODLivFunRun
We look forward to seeing you on 27th December!
