Join the Lord Mayor of Belfast run and fundraise for Mencap NI
09 February 2017
Mencap NI hopes that you will choose to join Team Mencap this year and #StepUp4Mencap by running and fundraising for our official charity partner on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May 2017! The Lord Mayor of Belfast is running the full marathon and fundraising in aid of Mencap NI. Rory McIlroy is also supporting our good cause and has a special message for you here.
The main reason Mencap Northern Ireland is relying on you running for this great charity and taking on the marathon challenge is to really put the ‘fun’ back into fundraising and #StepUp4Mencap. Dedicated marathon runners like yourselves help make a positive and direct difference to the lives of children and young people with a learning disability in Northern Ireland. We’d be delighted if you ran alongside our Learning and Disability team who are entering a relay team of five this year!
Whether you decide to run, walk, wheel or relay in May- Mencap really would love you to run and fundraise for them and ‘step up’ for children and young people with a learning disability. All of your fundraising efforts and proceeds go directly to help local people in Northern Ireland.
To register – go to www.mencapbigstepforward.org and we will also send you one of our much coveted running shirts!
