If you’ve ever decided to take on a big personal challenge you’ll know what it’s like to put your heart, soul and hours of training in to try and achieve it. Many of us take on these challenges and raise funds for favourite charities at the same time, often independently and without the massive backup that a charity place at a large event (like the London Marathon) will provide.
This is your chance to help and support your fellow TRCers by sponsoring them. The table below shows who’s raising funds at the moment, where and who for. You can often sponsor them on-line or at the club in the old-fashioned way, follow the links for more information.
If you’re raising funds for a favourite charity and would like your details added below, just drop me a line
