Carer UK is an organisation of carers fighting for the rights of carers across the country. Their aim is to make people recognise the true value of carers’ contribution to society and help them get the practical, financial and emotional support carers deserve and need.
In order to help Carers UK reach as many potential carers as possible, the organisation incites people to take in events and sponsorship activities that will help raise funds to aid carers across the country.
One of the most popular is the London Marathon sponsorship scheme, which includes a free membership for a year (worth £18), a free running vest or t-shirt and fundraising tip and support throughout training.
Runners interested in running for Carers UK this year must contact 020 7378 4952 or via email email@example.com. You must hurry as there are only 2 gold bond places left.
Other fundraising schemes are:
Adidas Women’s 5K Challenge
Great North Run
Great Scottish Run
2010 Kilimanjaro Climb
