Successful St Swithun’s event raises funds for Treloar’s
May 3, 2019 / 9:55 am
Over 200 people completed the St Swithun’s Way Walk and Run on Sunday in aid of Treloar’s. The flagship mass participation event, now in its seventh year, raises vital funds to support young people with the most complex physical disabilities to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life; whether through the enjoyment of learning, music, sport, art, or sensory activities.
The weather remained dry, but considerably cooler than the previous weekend – perfect conditions for walkers and runners to set some impressive times. The participants, including a number four-legged ones, set off across the rolling Hampshire hills and completed the 5-mile route to Bentley School for a refreshment stop. Many then carried on completing the full 10-mile course which ended at Farnham Park with a very welcome cup of tea and bacon buttie!
Treloar’s Events Manager, Laura Toop, explained: “St Swithun’s Way Walk & Run is such an enjoyable and important event in our fundraising calendar. It unites the Treloar’s community, bringing together supporters, both old and new, whilst helping raise funds and awareness for Treloar’s.”
Thank you to everyone who took part on the day, and those that sponsored a loved one. Your support really will help to change lives.
