Run for the BMA in the Brighton Marathon

Brighton Marathon Bhopal charity places

It’s that time of year again when we’re advertising places to run on for the Bhopal Medical Appeal in the Brighton Marathon. We have 34 places and they are always snapped up fast so do let us know if you are interested.

Places are limited for the event which takes place on Sunday 14th April 2013, but if you get in touch now then you can join 18,000 runners attempt the 26.2 mile stunning route around Brighton.

We provide you with a personalized running vest and can support you with ideas for your fundraising efforts. All we ask is that you raise £500 in sponsorship for the Bhopal Medical Appeal. Fundraising is easy, you can find us either through the Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving websites and start collecting online today.

Running for our appeal really can make a huge difference. The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds 2 clinics in Bhopal, India near to the site of the world’s worst industrial disaster. To date our clinics have treated 27,500 survivors.

We believe Dow must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
