Children's Cancer Run 2019
11th March 2019
We would love you and your family to join our school team at the 37th Children’s Cancer Run held at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park. Parents and grandparents are invited to bring and supervise their children during this exciting morning which is such a popular event for children and adults to run together in. The Children’s Cancer Run is a cross-country family fun run with one, three and five mile routes to choose from. The event is organised by the North of England Children’s Cancer Research charity and is supported by Greggs. We are very excited to be supporting this event and would like to invite you to join us for what promises to be a fun filled family day out. All participants receive a 37th Anniversary medal and Gregg’s picnic on the day, and all children receive a limited edition t-shirt. Metro Radio will also be there to entertain everyone with music and competitions. Please complete an on-line entry form to join our team: 1. Log on to www.childrenscancerrun.co.uk 2. Select ‘Sign me up’ 3. Complete your entry form, selecting our school name from the drop down list 4. Click proceed to payment to complete the registration for you and your family Special ‘Early Bird’ entry fees are available until 31st March which are: 16 years and under £6, adult entry £13 and family entry (2 adults and up to 3 children) £35. From 1st April standard rates apply under 16 £8, adult £15 and family £40. Please note that the three and five mile courses are suitable for children over 7. All children must be supervised by an adult (parents can accompany their children on the Mini Mile without registering but please register if you would like to receive a medal and picnic). We would encourage you to do what you can in order to raise sponsorship as all of the funds raised will be used to fund the research team at Newcastle who are working to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer. Every penny raised will make a difference, helping more children beat cancer. Please raise funds using either the paper sponsor forms that will be provided in your run pack, or the on-line fundraising page created when you register on-line. You will receive your ‘On the Day guide’, run numbers and start time through the post and your children’s t-shirts will be sent home with your child the week before the run. If you have any questions in the meantime please get in touch by email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Mrs Gillooly in the school office.
