24 hour non stop relay around Southport Marine Lake for charity August 28th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments 24 hour non stop relay around Southport Marine Lake for charity Seaside 24 hour relay 10pm Saturday 30th August – 10pm Sunday 31st August . Hi my name is Les Jackson and I am the creator and organizer of this fundraising event and the `Ramada Runners` fund raising team. I’ve done this so that we can raise money for two charities. The first charity is the Community Link Foundation who raise funds for good causes in Southport and the surrounding area. http://www.clfoundation.co.uk/index.php The second charity is one very close to our heart as this particular charity raises money for a children’s heart unit in the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle. This charity is called CHUF (Children’s Heart Unit Fund). We are raising money for this particular charity because they gave a life saving operation to a newborn baby of one of our valued staff and we felt we wanted to give some thing in return. http://www.chuf.org.uk/ The `Ramada Runners` are mixture of staff from the hotel and a selection of running friends. Online donations can be made at my own individual donations page linked to the team donations page at the following web address: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/seaside24 Or online donations can be made on the team fundraising page via any individual runners fundraising page link at : https://mydonate.bt.com/teams/ramadarunners The event is called the `Seaside 24hr Relay` or `Seaside24` We will be running roughly a 3 mile loop around the Marine Lake Southport non stop night and day from 10pm on Sat 30th Aug to 10pm Sun 31st Aug 2014. We will have one runner out at a time plus a support cyclist or running buddy when required to encourage the runners. We will be based at the ground floor lobby and coffee shop of the Ramada during most of this challenge, and also at times during the day we will be Lakeside behind the hotel supporting our runners.So feel free to come down to donate or support us. As a thank you any donator who donates £5 or more online will be entered into our draw for a free one night stay for two dinner, bed and breakfast in the Ramada Plaza for two people.You must correctly guess how many laps we will complete in the 24 hours and one correct entry will be drawn out of the hat to receive the gift.
