Great North Run Weekend 2017

Date posted: 02 Mar 2018

What a brilliant weekend !!

We had a fantastic team of 79 Children and 28 Adults taking part in this years Great Run Weekened. 

Our Mini and Junior runners done us super pround, there was yellow Charlie T shirts everywhere

Our adult runners tooko on the 13.1 miles From Newcastle to South Shields and they never gave up, each one crossing that finish line in support of CCF

We have no doubt that Charlie was with everyone on the day giving them all the boost they needed when those hills got bigger! Seeing so many runners out there in our Team CCF T. Shirts, raising money and awareness of our  foundation was so emotionally amazing.

The efforts and achievements of each and every runner has made such a massive difference to our inspirational families and we are so proud of you all!

£7371.75 was the total funds raised, all money going to our CCF families, helping relieve financial burdens when it matters most, allowing families to be together !!
