Children’s charity Jessie May is looking for people to run, jog, walk, push or wheel their way around its family fun run on Sunday, July 8 to raise funds for terminally ill children.
The People’s Grand Prix is fast becoming one of Jessie May’s most popular events, having raised an incredible £2600 last year. Now in its third year, it is hoped that more than 100 people will take part and enjoy the day.
As well as the 3km sponsored event, participants can enjoy a family fun day with an afternoon of activities and hot food and refreshments from noon-4pm.
Money raised from sponsorships for The People’s Grand Prix will go towards hospice and respite care for children with life-limiting illnesses within their own homes in Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Wiltshire.
Julian Withers, head of fundraising at Jessie May, said: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s People’s Grand Prix which is set to be bigger and better than ever”
“There are plenty of fun runs around but this one is fully inclusive and we hope wheelchair users, parents with pushchairs, runners, joggers and walkers all have a great time. It’s a family event so dogs are welcome too.”
The People’s Grand Prix is £6 to enter (under 2s go free) and online registration is now open. For more information and to register visit http://www.jessiemay.org.uk/peoples-grand-prix-2/
