Moorside4Action are four members of the Moorside Park Run Club who have been inspired to tackle the 2017 London Marathon and will be running to raise funds for children’s charity Action Medical Research, which is dedicated to improving the health of babies and children.
The quartet: Jim Hicks
Elizabeth Van Duyvenbode
will be joining the countries biggest race on Sunday 23rd April, to save and change the lives of sick and disabled babies and children. The runners are hoping to raise £4,500 through a series of fundraising events including a charity race night in March. The runners have all been members of Moorside Park Run Club (can you link to the run club page) since it was established almost 2 years ago – despite never running further than 5k when they started at Run Club, the foursome have now taken part in numerous trial runs, 10ks and half marathons. They decided to go into the ballot for the London 2017 Marathon, unfortunately they found out at the beginning of October 2016 that they did not get into the ballot. Within 48 hours of this THEY were signed up for the children’s charity Action Medical Research to run for them and team Moorside 4 Action was born. The training runs have commenced with the foursome going out every Sunday morning with other members of the Run Club, as well as after work during the week and even in their lunch hours!
