This Father’s Day, find out how you can team up with your day and help those living in poverty.
Last September, CAFOD Leeds’ Ben took part in the Great North Run and the Nativity Christmas Fun Run alongside his dad Richard to raise money for our work.
Ben hoped the element of family competition would spur him on to a faster time, it seemed to work as he beat his dad by a few minutes in the Great North run last September.
Ben said: “I ran the Great North Run in 2011 as well and really enjoyed it! There is a carnival-like atmosphere on the day. Signing up for a run like this is so much more fun with someone else; you can train and fundraise together!”
If you would like to run for CAFOD with your dad this autumn, we have an amazing Yorkshire Marathon offer for you. If you sign up for a place you can register somebody else absolutely free! You’ll have all summer to train together and you can work together towards your shared fundraising target of £500. So grab your dad, mum, sibling or friend and make a difference this year in the fight against poverty.
