Running to Help
More than 100 members of the South Cheshire Harriers witnessed the presentation of a cheque for £1600 to the Up and Under Foundation at their recent annual prize giving event. Profits from races organised by the club were added to sponsorship money raised by members at events including the London Marathon.
The club, which meets every Tuesday and Thursday evening at the Vagrants sports club, provides a warm welcome to runners of all standards and abilities. The club’s success during 2010 is reflected as much in the new recruits who have been supported in their running development as in the club’s achievements in many local and regional events. It is a measure of the strength and confidence of the club that it has been able to make such a significant contribution to the Foundation’s charitable efforts.

The money will be used to help local youngsters access courses and activity events which they might otherwise be unable to attend due to lack of money. All of the money will be used for these purposes as The Up and Under Group covers all of the administration costs of the charity.
If you want to help raise money for the Up and Under Foundation we have a just giving page www.justgiving.com/upandunder . We will continue to support local youngsters with grants throughout 2011.
