Action for Children is looking for runners to join its Swansea half marathon team ahead of the prestigious event taking place in the city on June 25th.

The event is the perfect opportunity for runners of all ages and abilities to run as part of Action for Children’s team raising money for those children and young people who need it most.

Action for Children fundraiser Nina Rice, said: “The flat and fast Swansea course will pass many of the city’s historical buildings, the bay area and vibrant city centre, giving you a fantastic view and showcasing Swansea in all its glory as you run, jog or walk the route. This a great opportunity to take part in a great Welsh competition and by choosing to run and fundraise for Action for Children, you will help us to change the lives of vulnerable and neglected children, young people and their families across Wales.”

Runners can join the Action for Children team with their own place or with one of Action for Children’s 10 charity places. For these there is a £25 registration fee and £250 minimum sponsorship.

All Action for Children runners will receive a support package including:
• Fundraising pack to help you raise sponsorship
• Action for Children running vest
• Fundraising support from your local fundraising team

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
