Charity Run #3, Fruit Fiends and the Final Destination!

And finally, after keeping all you fruit fiends in suspense, it’s the announcement of the final stop on our London Charity Run Tour! The Moor Park 10k and Junior Fun Run is the final stop on our banana giveaway tour!

Another deserving recipient, the Moor Park 10k and Junior Fun Run is all in aid of the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre – a first-of-it’s-kind centre that was opened in 1993, offering full support, info, counselling, therapies and other services to those affected by cancer. The centre itself receives around 15,000 requests for help from those affected by cancer every year and although the centre is partially funded by the NHS, half of it’s running costs (approx £560,000!) have to be funded by donations. All money raised from these runs will be donated to the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre, to help fund the centre’s costs so that it can continue providing invaluable help to cancer sufferers.

The run will take place at Merchant Taylors’ School on Sunday 26th September 2010 and registrations to run are still open, costing £13 for the £10k race and £8 for the Junior Fun Runs! Running in any of the races will be a great experience whilst also providing priceless donations to the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre. Also, the day will be full of fun entertainment, so even if you don’t want to run or are just watching someone run, you can pay just £2 and come for the fun fair, bouncy castles, face-painting, refreshments, games, competitions, entertainment, complimentary therapies and much more!

The Fruit for the Office’s beautiful assistants will be there to provide free bananas to all runners as healthy, tasty energy boosts so that you can all keep going so come and say hiya to us and who knows, we might even sneak you more bananas just for being friendly fruit fiends!

Good luck to all those running and, of course, we’ll keep all of you out there in cyberspace updated on how the run goes!
