Wimbledon Common Charity Event

Walk or run to raise help raise £10k

A charity 5k walk/run around Wimbledon Common on Sunday September 25 is aiming to raise £10,000 for charity.

The Victoria Foundation hope 100 walkers/runners will sign up to complete the "5k for £10k" event, which will start from Cannizaro House.

Each will pay a £20 entry fee, and will have a personal sponsorship target of £100. They will receive a training plan, cap, medal, goody bag and t-shirt.

Funds raised will support projects for those living with breast cancer and accessible transport for local groups and individuals.

The Richmond-based Victoria Foundation exists to provide life enhancing medical assistance. The charity’s objectives have the overall aim of improving lives where there is an opportunity to do so - either through medical provision or by ensuring young people destined to become the future generations of doctors are not thwarted by financial restrictions.

To register for the event, email: l.votier@thevictoriafoundation.org.uk.
