Entrance Fee is £5:00p and sponsorship forms will be made available shortly. The 'Fun Run' is complimented by many marquees, side-shows and activities in the 'arena', including bouncy castles, hair braiding, face painting, model railway displays, local dance troupes and musical groups and bands. There will be a Tai-Chi demonstration and Essex companies selling their wares.
The event is supported by Maldon District Council, who have allowed us to use Promenade Park and we are negotiating to have certain celebrities to support us on the day.
The British Lung Foundation have promised, that if this event is a success, it will become an annual event and become a major "Essex Family Fun Day".
The British Lung Foundation, launched in 1985, works to support the 1 in 7 people affected by lung disease. Support is the focus for many of it's activities, including a nationwide network of Breathe Easy Support Groups. There are currently 8 support groups in Essex and more planned for the future.
The forthcoming event in September is a joint initiative by all Essex groups and the purpose is to raise much needed funds for research into lung disease.
