Earlier this year, we started a JustGiving campaign in order to raise much need fund for the Red Cross, who are on the ground assisting those in need that have been affected by the War in Ukraine.
We're pleased to say that over 370 people donated and helped raise over £3,600.
The fundraising page is now closed and the money is on its way to be used by the Red Cross.
We just wanted to say 'thank you' to those who took part and I shows how the running community rally together in times of need.
We are all concerned about what is happening in Ukraine and this is our way of doing something to help - #Run5Donate5Nominate5
The running community here in the UK is made of up people from all backgrounds and we know many of you want to help the people of Ukraine. This is your opportunity to do so!
How do I get involved?
We are starting a fundraising campaign for the British Red Cross and anyone can get involved.
All you have to do is cover 5 miles or kilometres. This can include a run, walk or any form of movement you choose.
Once you've completed it, donate £5 and then nominate 5 people to do the same: #Run5Donate5Nominate5
Your donation could help someone affected get:
- first aid
- warm clothes
Please share this campaign and ask everyone you know to get involved.
