We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as a charity partner for City v Wharf, a competitive 5k run challenge between London’s two key business districts. We’re calling for individuals and teams to sign up for the race, taking place in Victoria Park, on 23 September and raise money to help us support families caring for a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.
City v Wharf is the biggest competition between the two key London districts. The challenge sees two of the most important financial locations in the UK, City London and Canary Wharf go head to head to see which side has the most runners taking part and the fastest companies. The run is organised by FixEvents who has teamed up with Rainbow Trust for City v Wharf and future events.
Helen Stammers, Events & Partnership Director for FixEvents says: “We are really excited to be working alongside Rainbow Trust for City v Wharf and other challenges. It’s a great opportunity to bring these locations together for a fun and competitive event, while raising money for families in vital need of emotional and practical support.”
Emma Haines, Director of Fundraising and Marketing for Rainbow Trust says: “We are very excited to be a charity partner for the City v Wharf run. It is thanks to the generosity of our fundraisers and supporters that we can continue our vital work. We look forward to a great evening out and will be there to cheer on all our participants.”
All Rainbow Trust runners will receive a running vest and support from the charity’s cheer squads throughout the route. Deadline for signing up is mid-September.
