THIS year’s RG Falla Quarter Marathon will raise funds for Help a Guernsey Child.
Now in its 11th year, the sponsorship money from those taking part in the annual charity run will go to assist disadvantaged local children, young people and youth organisations. Help A Guernsey Child also supports some other local charities that need additional funding.
‘As a Guernsey company which has been part of the local community for more than 50 years, we want to support those locally that could do with a little help’ said RG Falla managing director Peter Gregory. ‘Help A Guernsey Child is a charity which has benefitted thousands of people since being formed in 2001. Every penny they get makes such a difference to help children and young people who may not be eligible for support from other charities, and, crucially, all funding that Help A Guernsey Child receives stays in the Bailiwick.’
The run on Sunday 20th May, which starts at Vazon and goes to L’Eree and back again, is open to both individual runners and teams. Team entries need to include four or more runners and the team’s time will be calculated using the fastest four runners in each team. Prizes will be presented to the fastest male, female and team and all runners will be entered into a prize draw.
‘The RG Falla Quarter Marathon is always a very popular event and we hope that the number of teams involved will again grow this year, as will the funds raised. We are hoping to break previous records. The Garenne Group, RG Falla’s parent company, will again be entering teams and we are looking forward to seeing lots of teams for them to compete against,’ said Mr Gregory.
Teams need to pre-register before 17th May and individuals can register in advance or between 9.30am and 10am on the day. Entry forms can be downloaded from www.rgfalla.gg or more information is available by calling RG Falla on 256585, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
