Local charity Cavendish Cancer Care has announced the return of Sheffield Together, its annual event in Ecclesall Woods.
“This is a low-pressure event that’s great fun no matter your age or athletic ability,” says organiser Jonny Cole, who works at the charity. “You can run, jog or walk 5km or 10k – it’s up to you. Bring your kids, bring your dogs, everyone is welcome to join in.”
2018’s event was hit by the Beast from the East, but runners and walkers alike powered through the snow to raise over £4,000 in sponsorship money, despite the conditions. Cavendish hope to beat their total in 2019 by having more people sign up than ever before.
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 with a diagnosis in the family through their specialised young people’s service. But Cavendish only receives 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.
Early bird tickets to Sheffield Together are just £10 (or £7 concession for students and over-65’s) until January 31st, and there is no minimum requirement for sponsorship. Plus, children and dogs go free!
