Run for Care for Veterans in Worthing 10k

Worthing-based charity, Care for Veterans, is looking for 50 fabulous people to join its Worthing 10k running team, and help raise vital funds for disabled ex-Service personnel.

The Worthing 10k is one of the largest and friendliest running events in the south east, welcoming runners of all abilities to the flat seafront course on Sunday 3 June.

Care for Veterans has charity places for this year’s race, and has already begun recruiting members for its ‘Fabulous Fifty’ team, who will be running to raise money for the disabled veterans who are cared for by the charity.

Christine Gillott, Fundraising Officer at Care for Veterans, said: “Running for us is a rewarding experience and we will be there to support you all the way. The Worthing 10k is a great event for those who want to start running but need something to aim for. Running for a cause such as Care for Veterans will really help motivate you throughout your training, and on the day itself. Now is the ideal time to start training, so make sure you contact us asap to secure your place.”

Registration via Care for Veterans is just £21, and the charity asks that you raise £50 in sponsorship. In return, runners will receive a free Care for Veterans t-shirt or running vest, there will be a hospitality tent on race day with refreshments for before and after the run, plus entry into a prize draw to win a fabulous prize, and a party the week after the event.

If you’d like to run the Worthing 10k for Care for Veterans, call Christine on 01903 218444.

Since 1919, Care for Veterans has provided the highest possible standard of care and rehabilitation to disabled ex-Servicemen and women. The charity provides services such as nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy to help rehabilitate those that live there, so that they can live more independent lives.
