7 for 7 in 7 and St George

The St George’s Day Charity Fund will celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary in 2017 and has so far raised in excess of £465,000 for local charities and good causes.

7 for 7 in 7 was dreamt up to raise money and awareness for seven local charities and to add to the total raised by the St George’s Day Charity Fund, in the hope that the £500,000 mark will be passed in 2017.

The plan is for Nick Kier, from the St George’s Day Charity Fund, to run seven half marathons in seven days starting on Saturday October 22nd and finishing on Friday 28th October. Seven local benefactors have offered up to £2,000 in matching funds to each of the chosen charities. Each charity has been invited to enter runners or walkers to join Nick on their nominated day and to gain sponsorship in order to take advantage of the matching funds on offer. Nick will seek sponsorship for running all seven half marathons that he will divide equally between the seven charities.

Anyone is welcome to run or walk one or all of the half marathons with Nick and to seek sponsorship for one of the chosen charities or for their funds raised to be divided equally across all seven charities.
