OUR COMMUNITY FUND
FUNDING ACTIVE PROJECTS THROUGH YOUR DONATIONS
When you register for Cheltenham’s Half Marathon you will be asked to consider donating to our Community Fund. Donations offered by the public will be awarded to local projects providing the general public with the opportunity to get more active. We thank you for your donations.
Participants of Cheltenham's Half 2017 helped to raise £1000 for the Community Fund. After much consideration we have decided to split the funds raised and award £500to the Gloucester Rugby Community Fund to help deliver their programme of events designed to get inactive people active through rugby. They are currently working on a project with the local homeless shelter to encourage those without a home to come along and have some fun with other through the sport.
The second donation was awarded to Parkrun Cheltenham. The dedicated team of local volunteers do an amazing job of delivering the international initiative in Cheltenham every week. Around 500 runners take part in the free 5km event each week at Pittville park, many of whom are their to take their first steps towards a fitness goal or challenge they have set themselves. The money donated will go towards purchasing vital equipment to help the team continue to deliver the event each week.
We are delighted and honoured to support these two wonderful charity organisations.
