Walk & Run 8K

Besi Besemar August 14, 2012

Rise, the Sussex refuge and domestic abuse charity, needs people to run or walk for them in their main annual fundraising event, The 8K Undercliff Women’s Run and Family Walk.

The 8K Undercliff Run for Women is a scenic run by the seashore, alongside the famous chalk cliffs, from Saltdean towards Brighton and back.

Runners raise sponsorship money to help survivors of domestic abuse in Brighton & Hove and West Sussex.

Runners can enter singly or as a 4 member Relay Team, each running 2km.

Registered runners have also been invited by FitBitch Running Club to take part in free Wednesday training sessions to prepare for the challenge.

Hove based sports therapists, Studio 57 Clinic, are offering prizes and discounts for runners.

The Rise Undercliff Walk for Families takes place at the same time. The route will follow the seashore for the first 4K and then wind back along the cliff top for breathtaking views of the Channel.

The walk is open to everyone – you can even take your dog along!

As well as refuge accommodation, Rise offers crisis appointments, helpline, counselling, housing, legal and financial advice, solicitor appointments, support groups, play therapy and 1-to-1 support.

Most of these services are free but it costs over £3000 every day to keep these vital, life saving services available for local families.
