PAC-UK staff and supporters participate in a number of regular sporting and fundraising events each year. If you arrange your own event and would like to nominate PAC-UK to benefit from the proceeds, please do let us know! Recently we have been nominated by a couple getting married, and a couple entering into a civil partnership. Thank you so much for thinking of us at these key times in your life.
We have developed a fundraising pack which can be viewed and downloaded online. If you would prefer a hard-copy to be sent to you in the post, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our donations return form will need to be returned to us should you receive any offline donations throughout your fundraising. (If you are raising your money online, please use Virgin Money Giving and not Just Giving as we are not registered with them.)
Every penny you donate will contribute towards PAC-UK's vital work with adults, children and families affected by adoption and/or other forms of permanent care. Your help will make a real difference to people struggling with the impact of a traumatic past. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations!
Forthcoming events in 2017/18 include:
The Simplyhealth Great North Run is the second largest half marathon in the world, taking place annually in North East England each September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.
We have the pleasure of supporting three of our PAC-UK colleagues (Tanya, Stuart and Leon) in participating in the run and it would be amazing if you could join us in donating via our VirginMoneyGiving page.
Participating in this event is a first for PAC-UK and we aim to support our runners all the way to the finish line. Throughout the coming weeks and months we will be catching up with our team to get a behind the scenes look on how they are preparing for the half marathon, they will also be sharing some tips and tricks for anyone who is thinking about running for a good cause in the foreseeable future!
Each year, PAC-UK put together a team of runners/walkers each year to complete the course.
Last year there were some excellent results from the PAC-UK team, with Juho Lahdenpera leading the pack, completing the race in 40:47 and placing 13th overall. Read about the 2016 event here!
All funds raised go directly to PAC-UK. We always welcome new participants so if you're interested in running for us, please email email@example.com.
The Brighton Marathon is one of the UK’s favourite 26.2-milers. With a stunning backdrop of the sea in one of the country’s most vibrant cities, the race gets bigger and better every year.
Renowned for its buzzing atmosphere and roaring crown support, the course winds through the city streets, finishing up on the spectacular Brighton seafront. You can still sponsor our 2017 team here!
Please note: we have 2 spaces in the 2018 Brighton Marathon. To register your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
