Running Bee Foundation launches virtual challenge to help hungry children
4-week virtual challenge in support of free meals for kids
Runners are invited to put their best foot forward to ensure vulnerable children don’t go hungry during the current crisis. They complete a distance of their own choosing in the #EndChildFoodPoverty virtual challenge, supporting charity network FareShare and providing food to those in need.
The virtual event is organised by The Running Bee Foundation who were moved by the passion and commitment shown by Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford in his campaign for free school meals. They have joined forces with FareShare to raise funds that will be used to put food on the table for children and families struggling as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
What Marcus Rashford’s campaign and The Running Bee Foundation have in common is a desire to improve the health and life chances of young people and their communities and nutritious meals play an important role in that.
Their challenge is based over a 4-week period and in that time participants run, walk or cycle one of the following races - 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon on a route of their choosing and at a pace to suit them. Social distancing to be adhered to and participants must wash their hands after their exercise. They upload proof of completion which is verified and receive a medal in return.
This challenge is open to people of all ages and abilities who can complete their distance in one go
or as a series of several sessions.
Enter now and do a good deed for those in need. Visit The Running Bee Foundation website for more details.
