We understand that 2020 has been difficult for all, with COVID19 having severe impact on many athletes. Many have not had access to facilities to train for long periods, and limited opportunities to compete. With this has often come greater struggles both emotionally and economically, and 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 this year, 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 this year we did not know if we would be able to award any #RPMFGrants, and 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 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.
