Welcome to Fun Run & Festival 2018 – this is our 28th year!
Our aim is to raise funds to enable members of our community to thrive. Your support allows us to provide much needed services for some of society’s most vulnerable groups, especially young people, through our housing, childcare and health and wellbeing services. Firstly providing them with stability and support, then enabling them to achieve their goals of independence, health and wellbeing.
We would like to extend our huge thanks to the sponsors of our event whose continued generosity and commitment makes our event the success that it is!
2017 YMCA North London Fun Run & Festival – Event Report
YMCA North London’s annual Adult 10k and Children’s fun runs has evolved over the last 26 years into one of the largest community events in North London, continuing to grow in popularity and attendance year on year. As our flagship fundraising event, this enables us to celebrate the work we do in the community and raises much needed funds to help vulnerable homeless young people build a better future for themselves.
2017 Fun Run & Festival has been a huge success, we have managed to achieve and even exceeded our target for fundraising this year – with your help we have raised a massive total of £34,000!
Funds were raised through the race entries, but even more was from the generous donations made by the entrants through Just Giving and collecting sponsorship. This ranged from a few pounds through to hundreds of pounds, with every penny gratefully received. We want to thank all runners, of all ages and abilities, for their generosity and commitment – the event gets bigger and better every year, with your continued interest and energy!
We would also like to thank all our sponsors, we have worked closely with the local community, so our HUGE THANKS go to Heathside Athletics, Dunns Bakery, The Co –Operative, Heartlands School. We would like to express our gratitude to Greene & Co for another year’s donation to the festival. We are highly appreciative of their continued generosity in supporting our event.
