CARES, the Sandwell based charity which works with, helps and supports unpaid family carers throughout the borough of Sandwell, is appealing for a keen marathon runner to represent the Charity in the 2018 London Marathon on 22 April next year.
Places in the Marathon are always hugely oversubscribed and the General Ballot for 2018 is now closed. CARES, however, has gained a place through the Charity Ballot and is now looking for a runner to raise funds for the charity in next years’ race.
Geoff Foster, Chief Executive Officer of CARES said “This is a great opportunity for a local runner to fulfil a once in a lifetime opportunity, running in the London Marathon. Places in the marathon are often said ‘to be like gold dust’ but CARES has a place in the 2018 race”.
He continued “CARES will pay the entry fee for the runner and will help towards the costs of training and kit. In return we could expect the runner to raise a minimum of £1500 for the Charity”.
Anyone interested should contact CARES on 0121 558 7003 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
