Raising funds for TASTE via a sponsored Fun Run has become something of an annual event. Despite the humbugs who claim that fun run is an oxymoron, every year hundreds of people turn out in Sheffield and Wrexham to run, walk, stroll, pedal or push (buggies that is) around a 5k course. 5k, or roughly 3 miles to the uninitiated, is typical of the distance walked by women and children in rural Nigeria in their search for clean drinking water. Not for them the luxury of simply turning on a tap.
The Fun Runs this year raised:
- North Wales – £892
- Sheffield – £652
TASTE’s own Marathon Man, Peter Akrill in May 2017 completed the MK Marathon in 3:07:15. and raised £810 for us in the process. Nice one Peter, Thank you”
