Oh no - not another Marathon

After two terrific years of CamKids teams competing in the Brighton Marathon and raising over £18,000, we have managed to secure additional places for the 2014 event. We are aiming to make the third year the best yet for CamKids.  100% of the money raised goes towards our projects in Cambodia which make big, often life-changing differences to children and their communities.

The marathon takes place on Sunday 6th April which gives you a good amount of time to build up the miles slowly and carefully so you can have a great run in a fantastic environment. There is a great deal of satisfaction in crossing the finishing line knowing you have achieved your goal and have run for such a great charity.

The minimum sponsorship amount is £500 per runner and we already have a number of competitors signed up for the event. As an example of how far this money will go, £500 will pay all the running costs of one of our weekly medical clinics in extremely poor slum communities, for 2 months.

Participants will receive a CamKids T-shirt, Running Vest and Charity Wristbands and we will help you set up a fundraising page on JustGiving, to make collecting sponsorship money easy.  The runner who raises the most sponsorship money will also receive a selection of goodies from CamKids' Patron and fundraiser, Al Murray - The Pub Landlord.

There are a limited number of places and we have a short deadline to confirm the places with the organisers. If you are interested in taking part then please contact us at events@camkids.org.
