Edinburgh Fun Run

Big Fun Run

…..And now I am happy to inform you all that we can move to the east, Edinburgh, and get involved in their BigFunRun as they take part in what is fast becoming a National Treasure for fundraising.

                                                                                       Date: Sunday 28th July 

                                                                                             Location: Holyrood Park

                                                                                                     Start time: 11am

                                                                                                              Age: all ages welcome

                                                                                                                        Under 5s go FREE!

 …..Now this isn’t a race by any means, it is a fundraiser, so what we need is some willing souls who fancy an hours exercise to run/trot/walk round this most congenial course and raise some vital funds for this throat cancer charity. The simple way to do this is as follows:

     Contact our Edinburgh representative: Dawn Cullen (https://www.facebook.com/dawn.cullen.75873) [ 07470 – 501468 ] and let her know that you have joined the Edinburgh BFR (here). Liz will need you to fill in a ’20-20′ Registration Form (which Dawn holds) so that she can pass the details to our Head Office, who will then send you your free “20-20 Voice” Cancer T-shirt & wristband for the event (but please feel free to wear them anytime you like as they advertise this charity quite nicely!

     Dawn will also furnish you with a “Sponsorship Form” with the idea being that you get as many people (friends, family, work colleagues etc) to sponsor you on the 28th July – the entrant with the highest total sponsorship, paid in,will win a £25 Shopping Voucher from “20-20 Voice” Cancer.org

     We will be opening a VirginMoneyGiving donation page as well for any people who wish to donate individually (not through any particular entrant) and on that page will be a ‘Gift Aid’ button which, when clicked, will gain this charity a valuable 25% bonus on top of whatever the donation is/was: ie £10 = £12.50: £25 = £31.25 etc.

     Remember, this is NOT a race, merely a nice easy fundraising exercise to raise funds for those who have suffered terribly at the ‘hands of cancer’. Think about this:

What would YOU do without a voice?

How would YOU cope on a daily basis?

How soon would YOU want to be able to speak again?

All monies donated to this charity go directly toward helping those in need, no one takes a wage!
