Ron Pickering Memorial Fund has places available for 2015 event
The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund (RPMF) has a number of places available for those who might like to ‘Run4Ron’ at the 2015 ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon on April 19.
The RPMF supports many of Britain’s most talented young athletes with financial grants totalling tens of thousands of pounds every year.
Such is its impact, 51 British Olympians at London 2012 were helped during the early part of their career by the Fund and since its inception the RPMF has raised and awarded over £1.5 million in small but significant grants to several thousand aspiring young British athletes. Each award is designed to make a difference.
A key source of fundraising for the RPMF is via money raised by ‘Ronners’ taking part in events such as the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon.
Would you like to Run for Ron in 2015?
We only have a limited number of ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon places available and being a small charity, we rely heavily on the funds raised from this event. To ensure those wishing to run for us are serious about fundraising, we ask interested Ronners to complete an application form.
If you’re confident you can raise £500 (plus a £50 non-refundable registration fee) by running the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in 2015 and wish to support the Fund, please complete and return our application form. Early registration is advisable.
