‘Run the race of your life, and help others see a better life!’
That is the message from Galloway’s Society for the Blind, based in Penwortham, which is appealing for people across the area to sign up to one of the country’s prestigious running events to support the cause.
Emma Russ, senior fundraiser at Galloway’s, said: “The Virgin London Marathon is one of those events like no other, it’s on everybody’s bucket list and most people would love the chance to take part. In contrast, the Great North Run is the world’s favourite half marathon, with over 35,000 people taking part every year.
“We have limited places in both events but we must have people registered with the race organisers by the end of January. For both events we ask you can reach a minimum fundraising target but will support you 100 per cent in achieving this.”
