We understand that 2020 and 2021 have been difficult for all, particularly with COVID19 having severe impact on many athletes. Many have not had normal access to facilities to train and limited opportunities to compete. We will try to take these factors into account as best we can when we make our decisions.
Ron Pickering Memorial Fund has also been greatly impacted over the past 18 months, partularly in our Fundraising activities. The RPMF is dependent upon our "Ronners" in the London Marathon and their sponsorship that we rely upon for our RPMF Grants each year. With the cancellation of the London Marathon last year and the postponement of 2021 race until October, it is only thanks to the efforts of these volunteers and supporters that we can offer Grants this year.
The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund is a Charity that is active only within the sport of Athletics. We cannot support any other sports. RPMF Grants are awarded each year to young athletes with need and demonstrated ability in the sport.
Athletes from other sports such as Basketball, Swimming or Gymnastics shall be eliminated from the process and not considered for support. We are sorry for this but we believe that it is better to focus on where we can have the greatest impact based upon our history, experience and contacts.
