OUR RUNNERS ARE CHARITY SUPER HEROES!

 

Run for charity

In 2017 our runners raised the amazing sum of more than £4.2 million for charities and good causes across the UK and worldwide.

Without their hard work, training and dedication many charities would find it difficult to do their vital work.

We can't think of a better way to crown your finish line glory than knowing your tired limbs have helped raise money for those in need.

Imagine if you had to struggle to breathe every day just from getting out of bed.  Or you were living constantly worried about your heart or scared that you might have another stroke at any moment.  Living with the reality of a long term health condition can be confusing and isolating.  Every day activities such as picking up a knife and fork, making a cup of tea or leaving the house can feel like a massive challenge.

Today, one in five people in Scotland are living with the effects of chest, heart and stroke conditions. More people than ever before need our stroke nurses, rehabilitation support workers and peer support groups. Run for us so that we can support more people to take back their lives, regain their confidence and independence and live life to the full.
