We Support the Alan Shearer Activity Centre to provide specialist facilities


I intend to undertake a mammoth task and run 4225km in 2022, starting on Jan 1st, in order to raise funds for the Alan Shearer Foundation and the Northeast Autism Society, running 81km a week, 52 weeks of the year and for 365 days of the year.

I will be running a 10km every day with a half marathon (just over 21km) every seventh day in order to not just raise funds, but also to raise awareness of children and adults with autism and other needs and disabilities.

About the charity

The Alan Shearer Foundation was set up to directly support the Alan Shearer Centre in Newcastle: a highly specialist, disability, respite, residential and social provision for people with complex disabilities and acute sensory impairments. We need to raise at least £250,000 every year to ensure that we can continue to provide free sensory and specialist leisure activities and offer free and subsidised respite breaks for profoundly disabled children and adults. Funding from the Foundation ensures disabled people and their families are able to benefit from all the specialist sensory, leisure and social facilities at the Centre totally free of charge.
