YMCA Fun Run 2020 Update

Following the recent developments with the Coronavirus pandemic, we are sad to say we have decided to postpone the Fun Run and Sports Festival. We are therefore planning to reschedule the Fun Run and Sports Festival to Sunday 2 May 2021.

If you have already booked your place on the 2020 Fun Run, you will receive an email outlining your options. If you haven’t received this, please email challenge@ymcaeastsurrey.org.uk.

As you know, YMCA East Surrey is a local charity that helps people to belong, contribute and thrive and, despite the loss of fundraising income from events that have been cancelled, we are doing all we can during this crisis to support people impacted by Coronavirus.

If you would like to contribute to this cause, we would welcome any donations no matter how large or small. Any sums received will help us deliver vital YMCA charitable work such as our Supported Housing Scheme for young homeless people and our Heads Together Counselling project which are both continuing to provide services for vulnerable young people throughout the pandemic.

I would like to make a donation

We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Fun Run and Sports Festival, which we are sure will be bigger and better, and a fantastic way to celebrate the end of the pandemic.

In the meantime, please stay fit, healthy and safe.
