Runners urged to rise to the occasion for Brighton and Hove charity
11:10am Monday 22nd July 2013 in News
Hundreds of women and families are being urged to sign up to a charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year.
Rise, which supports victims of domestic abuse, is hoping to raise thousands from its annual 8km Undercliff Run and Family Walk.
The run takes in the coastline from Saltdean towards Brighton and back.
People can choose to run the whole route or teams of four can take part in a relay, with each leg covering 2km.
The 8km walk for all the family starts an hour before the run and follows both a sea level and a cliff top circuit from Saltdean.
There is a cap of 400, so people interested in taking part are being advised to book early to ensure their place.
The annual event has raised almost £30,000 for the charity since it began five years ago.
The charity says in the current financial climate, events like these are vital for it to raise money for its services.
Rise works in Brighton and Hove and West Sussex and its services include refuge accommodation, resettlement, crisis appointments, a helpline, counselling, housing, legal and financial advice.
It also runs help groups, play therapy, one-to-one support and training and preventative education.
People taking part in this year’s event on October 6 are being asked to raise a minimum of £40.
