[Archived] Run For Their Lives in 2013

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

After the success of London 2012, we’re hoping you’re all up for pulling on your trainers and hitting the streets to get fit and help raise hundreds of pounds for KidsCan’s vital childhood cancer research.

As we’re all in the North West these challenges would be a lot more accessible than the Great North Run!

We always have places in the Great Manchester Run (10Km) – 26th May or if you’re feeling brave there’s always the Greater Manchester Marathon (28th April)!

As with all our major runs, Great North Run, Great Manchester Run and Greater Manchester Marathon, we don’t even charge people to take part!

Instead we ask for a post-dated £60 deposit cheque which is not cashed or banked.

We ask for it to cover the cost of your place if you cannot run, as places are non-transferrable.

There are minimum sponsorship targets for the runs but we do supply you with

  • A KidsCan running vest, to run and train in
  • Personalized Sponsor Forms
  • A JustGiving.com sponsor website

If you think you will be interested in taking part any of these runs, please get in touch!

Thanks to everyone who has got in touch via the website or e-mail.

We’ve actually filled all our Manchester Marathon places now! We are still able to get more so don’t worry if you were about to register. There is still plenty of time to register.

We have plenty of places still available for The Great Manchester Run – The most popular 10Km run in Europe.

Why not grab a few friends, maybe a couple of inventive costumes and help raise vital funds for our unique research into childhood cancers.

Thanks again for letting me post.

Have a great weekend.

Still plenty of spaces for the Great Manchester Run though!

Free materials are given to our runners including a KidsCan running vest, personalised sponsor forms and a JustGiving.com online sponsor website.

Get in touch if you'd like to take part!

Hi Everyone,

Just to let you know the public ballot for the Great North Run has now closed.

If you haven’t put in for a place in the run you can now only get one via a charity.

If you haven’t got a place yet, all is not lost!

KidsCan are offering FREE places in the Great North Run so if you would like to run for KidsCan and help us find the cures for childhood cancers!

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi again everyone

As you might have read, we ask that our individual runners raise a minimum of £175 in sponsorship. However we’re looking for teams to take part! As an added bonus for signing up in a team, we are happy to offer a reduced sponsorship target!
For example, we would request a team of 4 to raise a combined total of £900 – the equivalent of just £150 per person!

If you think this is something your team would be interested in doing, please sign up by clicking here - http://tinyurl.com/KidsCan-GMR

Join The Purple Posse pounding the streets for KidsCan today!
