Massive thanks to all our TCF runners!

On the 7th September 2014 over 60 runners took part in the Great North Run 2014 raising money for The Children’s Foundation. We would like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to all of these runners for all the money they raised in order to allow the vital work to continue at The Children’s Foundation.

We all had a fantastic day at our charity marquee near the finish line at Gypsies Green in South Shields, where all our runners were able to meet up with their family and friends after the run and enjoy some lovely treats and refreshments that were kindly donated to us. Some of our runners were able to enjoy a well-deserved sports massage by Jason Stobbs (www.sportstherapy-northeast.co.uk) in our charity marquee after the run to ease those aching muscles. The sun was also out all day which made the day even more of a success!

The money raised from the Great North Run 2014 will go towards supporting the many projects here at The Children’s Foundation with the aim to improve the health and wellbeing of children within the North East. You can read more about all the projects we support here on our website.

Do you fancy this challenge in 2015? If you or anyone you know are interested in running for us in the Great North Run 2015 please let me know and once I am able to register runners for 2015 I will get in touch with you to offer you a place first, you can contact via email at: ashley.hall2@nuth.nhs.uk or by phone on 0191 282 0897.
