On 15th June 2014, Child Bereavement UK is holding its fourth annual Dash for Dad running event in the beautiful grounds of West Wycombe Park, Buckinghamshire.
A fun morning out for all the family, Dash for Dad will consist of a 1K, 2K and 5K running event for children and adults. All runs will be held within the park, with the 5K using a challenging hilly route.
There will be lots of fun, family activities to take part in after the races, or you can enjoy a lovely walk around the picturesque grounds.
Proceeds will go to Child Bereavement UK. The Saunderton-based charity supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
Emma Riley, Fundraising Officer at Child Bereavement UK, said:
“Bereaved children and families often tell us that they find Father’s Day and Mother’s Day particularly difficult. For children who don’t have a dad, or dads who have experienced the death of a baby or child, Father’s Day can take on a very different meaning, especially when others are celebrating. We organised Dash for Dad as a positive way for people to run in memory of someone or to support bereaved families whilst having a fun day out for a good cause. We are really grateful to Sir Edward and Lady Dashwood for providing stunning West Wycombe Park as the perfect location. Please come along and help support our vital work.”
