Our five marathon runners are aiming to raise the funds for our Homework Club to stay open every Saturday for a year.
The Homework club is really popular and fully subscribed. Children are supported with their homework by qualified teachers who are trained to deal with varying levels of ability.
The latest runner to launch, who launched his fundraising page today, says “If my training so far is any indication, I’ll feel completely cream-crackered. But if I manage to finish 26.2 miles and raise £1,400 for The Avenues Youth Project, it will be a tremendous feeling of accomplishment that will be tough to compare to anything I’ve done before!”
We at the Avenues wish Drew and all the runners the best of luck, both with their training and their fundraising efforts. You can find links to their fundraising pages on the 7th March post.
