…and help to enhance the lives of adults and children with a learning disability and autism.
The money you raise will go a very long way to providing essential social opportunities for our members enabling them to enjoy the same experiences as their peers in a safe and supported environment.
Almost 1 in 3 young people with a learning disability spend less than 1 hour outside their home on a typical Saturday and 85% have said they feel lonely. 50% of families that have a person with a learning disability live below the poverty line generally making these activities harder to access. Keynsham Mencap are providing a service that wouldn’t be accessible to most due to lack of financial resources.
The Bath Half is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK. It is also the largest charity fundraising event in the South West region and last year we took part for the very first time.
We raised over £4000 in this event and were fortunate enough to have 12 runners supporting us. The route is fast and flat, making it suitable for beginners and more regular runners.
In 2020 we hope to raise £5000 from our team of Bath Half runners, so please join us as part of Team Keynsham Mencap and help us achieve this target.
We will have a designated area in a marquee in the runner’s village where you can meet up with the rest of the team and keep your belongings safe.
You will get a fab running vest to wear with pride and our Music Man project will beat their drums, sing and cheer you on as you run past giving you that extra boost to get to the finish line.
We have charity places available for just £20. Sign up today, pledge to raise a minimum of £200 and help make a difference. To find out more please visit our website.
