Kids complete Mini Great North Run in aid of aniridia

THree boys and a girl of mixed ages under 8 wearing medals over pink tshirts and shorts on a Newcastle streetFour children, one with aniridia took part in this years Mini Great North Run to raise funds for us.

Their generous sponsors gave £525 via JustGiving plus a £100 cheque, for them completing the 1.5 kilometre challenge which is open to 3 to 8 year olds.

Mums Emma and Kelly said “Well done kids!!! They did amazing and are very proud of themselves! Thank you to all who have donated.”

Aniridia Network UK is very grateful for all their efforts. They will enable us to give support to lots more children with aniridia and their parents.

If these guys can do it, so can you! Contact fundraising@aniridia.org.uk to discuss how we can support you with raising money so our charity can continue its work.

Another piece of good news is that JustGiving are abolishing their £18 monthly fee for small charities. Hopefully we will qualify so that aside from the proportional administration fees, a lot more of any donations made through JustGiving would reach us. It is worth noting though that the other fundraising websites we use, already deduct even less from donations than JustGiving do/will.
