The 2018 Event was on Sunday 13th May
The major project for 2018 was in aid of YMCA Trinity Group registered charity no. 1069810 to provide counselling services to children in local primary schools.
Verity Swinscoe, YMCA Trinity Groups Marketing and Fundraising Officer said "We are thrilled the Fun Run has chosen YMCA Trinity Group as a major beneficiary for this years event. The donation will help us provide vital mental health support for young people in primary schools in South Cambridgeshire as well as for young people staying with us in our Cambridge accommodation. Our aim is to assist young people, in a crisis situation, to improve their lives and to explore their talents allowing them to contribute, thrive and belong in their communities".
In addition, we will be supporting their work with particularly vulnerable homeless individuals in this area by funding a room in the Cambridge hostel.
A second major beneficiary is Addenbrookes Charitable Trust registered charity number 1170103 with the purchase of a CO2 ventilator module for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Rosie.
