ASICS London 10km – can you run for us?

Did you set yourself the challenge of getting fit this year?

Have you decided to do more for charity?

If you can say yes to either of these, why not join the ultimate foot tour of London. Run by Trafalgar Square, the Embankment, Big Ben and more on a hop-on-keep-hopping run tour. Flat and iconic, the classic course is ready for your best time and selfie. Sign up for the ASICS London 10km in July and run to raise money for Holding On Letting Go!

We’re based in Rochester but help families across the whole of Kent.

The run is on Sunday 21st July and is a great day out!

We’re looking for runners to wear our T-shirt and raise some money for us – which will go towards the monthly bereavement weekends we provide for bereaved children aged 6-16 across Kent.

In 2019 we have been able to plan a record 11 bereavement weekends this year, in Sittingbourne, Broadstairs and Wrotham.

These are unique, specialist support weekends specifically for grieving children – there’s nothing else like them around the county.

Money raised from our runners will be used to support the children and their families so they, when they are ready, hold onto precious memories and let go of the sad ones.

Our support weekends also include arts and crafts, and music therapy sessions. We aim to provide children with a safe place to tell their story, share their feelings and ask their questions, giving them the coping strategies to move forward confidently in life.

Our support extends to the parents and carers of the children we support, with bespoke activities to help them through the grieving process.

CEO Caroline Ford said: “We’d love to hear from people who would like to run for us at this fantastic event. It’s a great way to see the sights with no traffic to watch out for!”

“It’s a great event and whilst not everyone’s a runner, myself included, this is a shorter run compared to a marathon and there might just be a few people out there who fancy a London run but don’t want to do the 26 miles for the marathon – this could be a great alternative!”

“And of course, raising money for us at the same time will really help us to provide the support we give to the children and families who come to us from across the county.”

“There’s also a lot of information on the event’s website around training, eating and getting ready for the race too, so along with our support, our runners will be looked after!”
