Weʼre raising £500 to support the Chairman of HDC's Charity Spectrum, a support group for parents and carers of children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Market Harborough, Leicestershire
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
As Chairman of Harborough District Council, I will be taking part in the Market Harborough Park Run in Welland Park, Market Harborough on Saturday 14th September 2019 which starts at 9:00am.
I will be running the 5K race to raise funds and awareness for my Charity for this year – Spectrum. It would be great if you could show your support by sponsoring me in my challenge to complete the course. I shall be running with my Chain of Office pinned to my T-shirt!

Sending a big Thank You to everyone who has supported me so far, helping me to surpass my original target. I took part in the MH Park run on Saturday. It was such a lovely morning and I met so many wonderful runners and supporters who all cheered me on. I cannot thank all of the Park Run Officials and Marshalls enough, their support has been outstanding. Due to a slight mix-up and not completing the full circuit, I will be re-running the Park run on Sat. 28 Sept. So there is still plenty of time to show your support. Thank you Barbara J
