Run the London 10K for the Bhopal Medical Appeal
Oct 24 2012 by Jade van Drie-Brown
The Bhopal Medical Appeal have places in the British London 10K run which is set to take place on Sunday July 14th 2013.
The run which is now in its 13th year, takes an iconic route through central London passing all the key landmarks- Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, St Pauls Cathedral and Trafalgar Square.
We pay your entry fee, you get official chip timing and a personal race photograph, plus we give you a Bhopal Medical Appeal running vest. After the run we treat everybody to a cold beer and curry picnic in Hyde Park- which has now become a very popular tradition with our runners! All we ask is that you aim to raise £250 in sponsorship.
We are a small organisation and running for our appeal really makes a huge difference. Your sponsorship money funds two clinics in Bhopal that provide the only free health care for the survivors of the 1984 gas disaster.
Where your money goes:
£10 pays for a child to have one month of speech therapy
£30 provides a month’s physiotherapy for four children
£50 provides special education to seven children for a month
£100 runs a minibus for a month, bringing ten children to Chingari
£250 buys a month’s supply of inhalers for people with asthma
£500 helps train an entire community in how to prevent TB
£1200 would provide us with two sorely-needed computers
£6000 pays a doctor’s salary for a year
£16000 runs the Sambhavna clinic for one month
Places for the event are guaranteed to snapped up quickly so get in touch by emailing email@example.com or by calling us on 01273 603278 for more information or to sign up now.
