We bring you glad tidings that YMCA North London will stage our first ever Santa Run on Saturday 8th December – a 5k fun run set in the grounds of Alexandra Palace. We think it is the first Santa Run to be held in North London.
This will appeal to fun runners, and families.
There is also a 2.5k for young people aged 10-15, and a 1.k for children aged 5-9.
Fundraising is optional, however we hope to reach our Santa Run fundraising target of £15,000.
It’s the season of goodwill and giving, so we hope it won’t be too difficult to raise sponsorship, particularly if you and your friends and family pictures of your runners training and taking part in your Santa suit!
The Santa Run 2018 will be raising money for our housing charity (which operates the hostel for young people at risk of homelessness), as well as our health and well-being programme, that last year, gave out 19,500 concessions for local people and families on low incomes at our adult fitness centre, at our children’s activity centre, and our out-of-school childcare programme.
£6 could help provide three children from a deprived background with a meal at our breakfast club
£15 could provide three wash kits for young homeless people
£50 could buy a pair of work boots needed for work in construction
£80 could support discounted afterschool club sessions for parents on low incomes
£150 could allow a young person to attend a two - week work placement in the City
