It’s back! After a year hiatus the annual 12th Cambridge charity night of madness that is The Sun Run is making a grand come back, this year supporting not just one, but two charities….
What is the Sun Run? At exactly sun set, 9.21pm on the evening of Friday 14 June a gang of scouts from both troops will set off from the village of Arrington near Wimpole Hall and attempt to cover the 24KM home to our HQ before sun rises the next morning at 4.37am.
For our scouts it is an extraordinary physical feat and we expect most of them to collapse in a heap at the end, it is though for a fantastic cause. This is what they looked like on the finish line the first year we did it!
This year Wildcat troop have selected MIND and Raptor troop have selected Water Aid (sponsor them via the links!) as their charities of choice. These charities are entirely the choice of our youth members and reflect causes that they are passionate about.
Mind are a national charity who support those with mental health problems, helping them access treatment, whereas Water Aid are an international charity focused on providing clean and safe drinking water to communities in the developing world. Both are brilliant causes.
So if you have a few quid to spare please feel free to throw it in the direction of our scouts. They all made a promise to help others, this is them keeping it.
