GREAT SANTA FUN RUN HELPS GOOD CAUSES
It's that time again - The 9th Wimborne Rotary Santa Fun Run will be held at Badbury Rings point-to-point course on Sunday 10 December. Last year, the event which is sponsored by the Rotary club’s Business Partners, saw more than 100 Santa’s taking part in the annual charity run.
Following a cheerful warm-up session , entrants assemble for the start and then choose to run or walk over a challenging course of two or four miles raising sponsorship for their individual or team charities. Oldest participants last year were John (86) and Molly (85) Slow from Wimborne, who successfully completed the two-mile challenge.
DO NOT forget the FREE Mince Pie !
Last year at least twelve charities benefited from the efforts of team and individual runners:
John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation
Sport Against Cancer
Sheltered Work Opportunities
Rotary Polio Eradication
British Heart Foundation
Cancer Research UK
Forest Holme Hospice
East Dorset Citizens Advice Bureau
Wimborne Athletic Club
Poole Africa Link (Healthcare)
