Thrive Federation West Worthing 10K and 5K Run

Thrive Federation West Worthing 10K and 5K Sunday 10th March 2019, 10:30am start

Join us on race day at Worthing seafront and raise funds for the Thrive Federation of Special Schools.

Now in it’s third year, the West Worthing 10K and 5K is a friendly seafront run, welcoming runners of all abilities to a flat out and back route. All funds raised from the event will be shared across the four fantastic special schools in the Thrive Federation. Palatine Primary School, Oak Grove College and Herons Dale Primary School provide education for children with special educational needs, many of whom have associated sensory, motor and communication difficulties including Autistic Spectrum Conditions. Cornfield School is for boys with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. All four schools do incredible work to address the unique needs of all the pupils at the schools. Fundraising allows the schools to enrich the lives of the children attending the schools and to enhance their learning experience to make it as fun, dynamic and creative as possible.

Some of the projects that the schools are looking to fund are: a music technology room, wheelchair accessible play equipment, a sensory soft play room, a teaching kitchen and a rebound therapy centre.

Run for Thrive Whether you are an experienced runner or looking for a new challenge for 2019 this run is open to all. Sign up for either the 5K or 10K and run for the Thrive Federation. Runners can also help to raise more money for the schools through sponsorship, you can start your fundraising by setting up a JustGiving page. It only takes a few minutes to set up a page and can be shared easily with friends and family via e-mail and social media. Using JustGiving also makes collecting Gift Aid easy. To set up your fundraising page simply head over to http://www.justgiving.com

The event is managed by Sporting Events UK and will be chip timed and fully licenced by Run Britain and UK Athletics, all finishers will get a bespoke medal plus there will be category and team prizes.
