ARE YOU UP TO THE CHALLENGE?
Many of the young people we support have already had to face challenges along the way – so why not challenge yourself and sign up for an event to raise funds for WorkingRite.
The Flash Mob Run: It may only be a shade over a 10K but don’t expect the course to be too easy; the Pentland Hills are steep, winter is coming and the trail goes ever up. A trail race lit with glow sticks, all you need to bring is your head torch and a sense of adventure. For more info and to register visit Breaking Strain Events – then just set up your fundraising page.
Our team of supporters have raised over £5,000 in sponsorship this year. Please spread the word about events for 2018 – the more of you who take up a challenge – the more young people we can help.
