Sarah took on the Cardiff Half in 2019 to help protect children and prevent abuse.
“By doing it for #TeamNSPCC, I’ve helped keep more children safe. Every pound I’ve raised will help prevent abuse and transform society so it’s safer for all children. The NSPCC is such an important organisation, and that’s why I support them.”
“Cheering on all the amazing runners as they pass the 6 mile mark in Cardiff Bay is one of our favourite parts of the Cardiff Half weekend! It’s incredible to feel the support and buzz of the city #reliveCardiff
Hayley and her husband were part of the British Heart Foundation team for the Cardiff Half Marathon. By running the 2021 Cardiff Half for the BHF, you’ll be helping to fund life-saving research to keep hearts beating and blood flowing.
“The 2019 Cardiff Half was mine and my husband’s first half marathon. We had only started to run in March! My hubby completed in just under 2 hours 30, and I did in just over 2 hours 35. I loved every minute of it, especially the atmosphere and the feeling of running for such a great cause!
My daughter in the picture, Amy, was born with congenital
heart disease and was in hospital at the time we ran. She was gutted she
couldn’t come to support us on the finish line. My first stop after the race
was straight to Heath Hospital in Cardiff to see her.”
Prostate Cancer UK became a charity partner to the race in 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Their chance to make memories may have been postponed but their ambition remains the same – to stop men dying from prostate cancer – a disease killing 1 man every 45 minutes in the UK.
Join their team and raise money to fund research to radically improve how prostate cancer is diagnosed and treated. It’s only £20 to secure your place (when pledging to raise £200) for Prostate Cancer UK and they’ll send you a free technical fibre running top with iron-on letters to allow supporters to cheer you on. They’ll send you training and fundraising tips too!
