Anna's Hope 5k Fun Run

The children's brain tumour charity is encouraging youngsters to make a difference in this year’s event at the Perkins Great Eastern Run, on Sunday 13 October.

Anna's Hope are offering up to 300 free places for children up to 16 in the Anna’s Hope 5K Fun Run who aim to raise £30 or more for Anna’s Hope. Just £30 will fund one week’s specialist neuro-rehabilitation support for one child with a brain tumour and £125 is enough for a month’s care.

Founder of Anna’s Hope Carole Hughes said “We want to thank all those children who have supported Anna’s Hope in the past and this year we are delighted to offer up to 300 free places to encourage children to have fun, run or walk with their friends and family and make a difference to the lives of children with a brain Tumour.”

Children taking part in the Anna’s Hope 5K Fun Run will also be awarded a certificate in addition to the medal they receive for completing the run.

In addition, any school that raises more than £375 for Anna’s Hope (three months of support for one child) will receive a ‘Making a Difference’ trophy.

The 300 free places initiative is only open to children under 16, but adults are still encouraged to enter the Anna's Hope 5K Fun Run and raise money for the charity.

All Anna’s Hope runners are invited to the Anna’s Hope marquee after the run to celebrate with cake and a drink.
