The ROC Run for The Sussex Heart Charity
The ROC team are running to make a difference!
The ROC team are taking the initiative to raise money for charity for The Sussex Heart Charity by running through one of our favourite UK towns. The Vitality Brighton Half Marathon 2017 will be held on Sunday 28th February. A beautiful seafront course, amazing crowd support and one of the first half marathons on the running calendar.
The Charity supports local research and community resuscitation training and became known as the Heart Guard and was only the second of its type in Europe (after Norway). By 1984 over 20,000 citizens had been trained in Brighton and many lives had been saved: successes that would have been very unlikely without bystander intervention. The Charity have funded several Automated Defibrillators as well as increasingly financing projects outside Brighton including community training.
We have now set up our JustGiving page and aim to raise £1000 for the Trust!
Please make sure to donate anything you can, a little or a lot – every penny counts, you'll be showing your support for our ROC Runners and helping to make a difference.
