Why Not Run 2017: Sunday, 7th May 2017
Why Not Run is a Charity Fun Run for all the family and for all ages and abilities, which raises money for local children's and young people's charities. It is held in the grounds of Farringtons School in Chislehurst, Kent.
We are delighted that Why Not Run 2017 will be raising funds for:
The Ben Daniels Memorial Fund in association with Cardiac Risk in the Young
Ben tragically died in 2011 from an undiagnosed heart condition whilst playing football aged just 15. Ben's fund raises money to hold screening sessions in the local area to screen as many children and young people as possible.
At least twelve young people die in the UK each week from undiagnosed heart problems, so in addition to raising funds for this fantastic charity, we are also hoping to raise awareness of the importance of having young people screened.
Funds raised from Why Not Run 2017 will go towards hosting a series of local screening sessions. All Why Not Run participants aged between 14 and 35 will receive priority booking invitations to these screenings.
