Children taking part in the Mini and Junior Runs are encouraged to raise a small amount of money to help a local cause.
They can, of course, choose any charity of their choice - or opt to support the event's official partner charity.
The Children’s Air Ambulance is changing the face of paediatric care through the high speed transfer of critically ill children. Right now, this free of charge service works alongside NHS transport teams to help fly paediatric patients to specialist treatment. It is the first and only dedicated paediatric helicopter emergency transfer service in the country.
