We are looking for people who are either keen runners already, or want to get fitter and exercise more in 2018!
Did you know that by meeting your fitness goals you could also raise much needed funds for NNRF?
How does this work? Well, it’s a known fact that if you have a goal to work towards you are much likely to keep running than if you simply run when you feel like it.
Especially if you make that goal public!
So we’re asking our supporters to sign up for a run in 2018 and get sponsorship to complete it. It could be a fun run of a mile or less, 5k, 10k, a half marathon or even a marathon. You might want to look at an obstacle course instead, or a muddy run… there are loads about!
Then set up a fundraising page on Just Giving. It’s really easy and means the money you raise is all donated online and you don’t have to worry about collecting any of it.
And tell all your friends and family about it. You’ll be amazed how supportive people are. Share it on your Facebook page and let us know so we can share it on ours too!
Just to get you started: check below for links to come of the runs in Nottngham this year. If you find any more, please let us know!
