Running for Charity

We all have many reasons for running; we run for fun, for health benefits and likeminded convivial company.

Sometimes we also run for those who are unable to, while taking part in a charity run. All larger marathons in major cities around the world have charities affiliated with them and offer possibility to take part as charity runner.

Ladies Running Club supports its members in form of a small donation to the charity you are raising funds and running for. Once you have gained your entry for a charity race, kindly contact us here informing the committee of this for a sponsorship.

In return, we would very much like to feature your experience here on our website with a story and pictures of the event.

“Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.” ~ John Wesley

  • Running for Charity takes running to a whole new level – Josette Portelli  Fundraising with friends and colleagues Some international running events are so popular that the only way to get a place is to run for a charity.
