2015 charities receive £13,650

It has become the principal community event in the area and one of the largest charity events in the region. The fact that over £424,000 has been raised since it started in 1986 is a testimony to the magnificent community spirit, shown by many who contribute in different ways - the registration and their sponsors; Cambridge Building Society; other sponsors and advertisers; local businesses; retailers; local organisations and Sawston Village College.

Organised originally by Sawston Village College the Fun Run has since 2001 been organised by the Sawston and District Rotary Club, one of 32,500 clubs in 168 countries throughout the world with a combined membership of over 1.2 million members. By organising the event the club continues it's support and involvement with the community.

Supporting the event makes a real difference to the lives of many in our local community. Whether you are a walker, runner, sponsor, donor or a helper on the day your involvement helps local charities and organisations to enhance the lives of those they serve.
