St Albans Half Marathon - Community Chosen Charity 2018
2017 was another successful year for our community charity poll. Once again we have decided to let the community decide who the main beneficiary for the '37th St Albans Half Marathon' will be! We have nine fantastic local charities who have applied for this opportunity, so now it is up to you to decide!
Simply provide your name, postcode and email and then make your vote! The poll will close at 11.59pm on Tuesday 31st October 2017.
Quote from Kate Grigg, Head of Fundraising in Hertfordshire for Rennie Grove our 2016 charity:
“We were absolutely delighted to find out we had been voted as the main benefitting charity of the St Albans Half Marathon 2017. Our runners collectively raised over £24,000 which is incredible. This equates to around 1,000 hours of specialist nursing care in a patient's home or a health assessment for a patient in our Day Hospice, giving patients choice about how and where they receive care. To have that amount as an unexpected income is just amazing. We also noticed that it bought the office together. A few Rennie Grove employees got involved in the 5k and half marathon and there was a real sense of team work and motivation in the office, which extended to the Rennie Grove running team that consisted of around 100 runners! ”
