Early Bird entry is now available for the annual Sheffield Together walk/run – a fun and friendly event in Ecclesall Woods to support local families.
Generously sponsored by legal firm, Atherton Godfrey, Sheffield Together will be held on Sunday 8th March to raise money for local charity Cavendish Cancer Care.
“Following my own cancer treatment and fantastic support from the Cavendish Centre, I decided to sign myself and my children up to Sheffield Together as a way of raising money to give back to the centre,” Says Julie, who attended the event last year. “I walked/ran it with my 8 year old son, while my 10 year old daughter charged off ahead! It’s a really well organised event – well marshalled and signposted – in a lovely location. We will be having another go this year!”
In 2019, Sheffield Together welcomed over 150 people to Ecclesall Woods, a stunning area of ancient woodland. Runners, walkers, and dogs alike took to the mud and raised £7,000 in sponsorship money. This year’s event is set to be even bigger and better, with a brand new route through the woods to be unveiled.
Cavendish Cancer Care is a Sheffield charity dedicated to offering free of charge support to cancer patients and their loved ones. They provide packages of therapy tailored to the individual to support both mental and physical health, offering services such as counselling, massage and acupuncture. They even support children through their specialised Young People’s Service. But Cavendish Cancer Care only receive enough funding from the government to keep their doors open for about two weeks a year, meaning events like Sheffield Together are a vital way to raise money and keep the centre running.
“This event is suited to anyone. It doesn’t matter what age you are, or whether you’ve never done a walking or running event in your life! It’s all about getting together and enjoying the atmosphere whilst supporting a fantastic local charity.” Says Helen, who is organising the event.
Early Bird entry to Sheffield Together is just £10 (£7 for concessions for students and over-65s), until 31st January. Children and dogs go free! Raising sponsorship is encouraged, but there is not minimum requirement for this.To sign up, visit www.sheffieldtogether.co.uk.
