The Arena Group York Mini and Junior Runs are entirely free to enter. Where possible, we encourage youngsters to try to raise a small amount for charity. They can run for any cause or choose to support the event's official partner charity.
Bereaved Children Support York is a local charity that seeks to support children, young people and their families living in the York area, so they are better able to cope with the impact of bereavement on their lives. We do this by running a monthly, peer support group which provides the opportunity to meet other children and families with similar experiences in a relaxed, fun and creative environment.
We also offer one to one therapeutic support provided by experienced bereavement practitioners for those children who need it.
Bereaved Children Support York are committed to raising awareness of the needs of bereaved children, initially by hosting training days about grief and bereavement for representatives from schools. We also arrange social activities and are exploring ways to expand provision for older children and young people.
