RUN FOR IT! (or walk it) We need your help!
Sports Academy George are striving to raise £30,000 to support their work. We aim to have 60 teams competing in the relay section of the marathon with each runner raising £100. We are looking for teams or individuals to take part- its not too late to sign up- contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
Through this event we are striving to raise funds for the running of Sports Academy. As a charitable organisation all of our funds come from donations and with an ever growing programme we need your help to continue to provide for the young people that we are working with. Your money will be used to enable out students to have the best that we can offer. It will be used for our weekly activities to provide playing kit, transport to and from training, food to re-‐fuel after training and matches. It will also be used to enable our teams to compete in tournaments by covering the touring costs such as entry fees, accommodation and food. Funds will also be used to support our exit programme which enables students, who would not otherwise have the opportunity, to enter further education after leaving school.
What do you need to do?
What we ask of you it that you either get a team of 5 runners to compete in therelay section of the Belfast marathon, each team member raising £100 for Sports Academy thus a total for your team of £500. Sports Academy will take care of the team entry and fee. Or you can enter as an individual runner or walker to compete a leg in a team that we put together.
NB. In order for us to claim gift aid on the money we would ask that you collect the money from your team and complete a sponsorship form indicating that you choose to gift aid the money. If you are not a tax payer please get one of your tax paying team members to complete the team sponsorship form.
