Walking and Running Power

Walking Power 4 October

4 October is a day to walk, share and celebrate someone special. Brighton’s Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walk will see families coming together to fight dementia.

The Memory Walk starts at Hove lawns and heads along the seafront, a flat, easy wheelchair and pushchair friendly terrain offers both a 2km and an 8kn route. Memory Walks are a series of walking events held every autumn across the country to raise money to provide support for people living with dementia and fund research into a cure. Expect raffles, face-painting, live music.

Running Power 12 October

The 8k Undercliffe Run for Women is a scenic run along the seashore from Saltdean to Brighton and back.

The run is an annual fundraising event to help survivors of domestic abuse in Brighton and Hove and West Sussex. To celebrate RISE’s 20th Anniversary they ask that each entrant commits to raising at least £20. Anyone managing to raise over £150 will receive a free RISE technical running vest after the event.

Save my Job

“We should remember that domestic violence remains a tragic reality for many people. Now is the time to put an end to violence in the home and do all we can to protect children from abuse – not cut back on crucial services for the most vulnerable in our communities.”

So said Caroline Lucas MP on hearing the news that Sussex-based domestic violence charity Rise is facing the threat of losing its child support worker since funding ended on March 31. Anna Young, the worker under threat, is campaigning to save her job, and therefore Rise’s entire child support service. Anna has set up an online fundraising campaign called ‘Savemyjob’ which she hopes will raise enough money to keep this service going.
