5K May - Run for Heroes with RC of Bognor Regis

(May 2021) Run for Heroes is launching its latest challenge by turning the month of May into a celebration of physical activity with their 5kMay campaign. 

Since March last year Rotarians in Bognor Regis have been working closely with several local primary schools and their dedicated teachers – who are their Heroes -  to help feed those children who do not benefit from the Free School Meal Voucher scheme and where they have, to date, raised over £37000.  Despite the lifting of Covid restrictions, the difficulties do, regrettably, continue and they are now looking to help those children over the summer holidays. The Rotarians in Bognr calculate that they would need to raise some £1000 for each week of the holidays.

You can take part on your own or as a group, donate your £5 to The Rotary Club of Bognor Regis, then nominate 5 friends or family members to complete their own 5km challenge and support us. Sign up to the challenge at here.
