With a free goody bag, the motivation of fundraising for an incredible cause and being part of a brilliant running team– this opportunity is not to be missed! Below, I’m going to explain why the Royal Parks Half Marathon is so important to our charity.
Feed the Minds has been taking part in various challenge events for over ten years. From the famous London Marathon to the obstacle-filled Tough Mudder – these challenges have played a hugely important part in the growth of our charity. And, in the last few years, the Royal Parks Half Marathon has been at the forefront of these challenges.
By hitting a £350 fundraising target for Feed the Minds, our incredible runners will be helping some of the most vulnerable women and girls around the world; girls like Bridget (pictured below), who said no to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) thanks to the support of one of our projects.
To put this into perspective, just £25 could support a girl like Bridget to complete our Girl’s Education Programme in Kenya, providing them with knowledge on their rights, building their confidence and helping them to stay in school, without going through FGM.
Our runners are not just raising vital funds for our education projects abroad, but through their amazing fundraising efforts they are also increasing exposure of issues like FGM and the marginalisation of people, especially women, in the Global South. Through taking part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon for Feed the Minds, our brilliant volunteer runners are taking a stand against issues like FGM, and further showing their belief in the power of education to transform people’s lives, like Bridget.
For a limited time only, the next three sign-ups will all receive a free running gift bag courtesy of Runners Need. This will be a Runners Need Run Club bag, which includes a Runners Need Run Club top, a Runners Need water bottle and an Addaday roller.
Runners Need helps runners to make the most of every step, with high-quality kit from world-leading brands, and have kindly offered us gifts for the next three sign ups!
With this gift bag, our runners will be more than ready to start their training to run in one of the most famous half marathons around, and help to transform lives in the process. So what are you waiting for? Sign up here today!
