We're delighted to announce that HEROES RUN will be returning on the 13th May 2018, and will be in aid of RISE!


Sunday 13th May, 2018

Hove Lawns

The money raised from the HEROES RUN will be used for our children’s counselling service – which will help children affected by domestic abuse. 90% of children will be in the same or next room when domestic abuse happens, and often don't have the language to express what’s happening, what they’ve seen and how they feel.

If every HERO raises just £20 we can fund a child psychotherapist for the next year, helping children build self-confidence and work through their experiences in a safe and nurturing environment. We believe that by encouraging children and young people to have healthy relationships we can help break the cycle of abuse.

There are four challenges in the 2018 event:

  • Adults (ages 13+) 5k
  • Adults (ages 16+) 10k
  • 500m Mini HEROES Dash
  • Youth Mile

Registration costs between £5 and £22, to cover the administrative costs of running the event.

We're even offering a sibling discount for the kids' races... a brother or sister gets to enter for half price! Please book this through Fiona Gray by contacting 01273 622828 ext 230 or fiona.gray@riseuk.org.uk.
