Moore Family Fun Run 2018 launches!

MFF Fun Run

Ahead of the Moore Family Foundation Awareness match on Saturday against Watford, registration is now open for the fourth annual Moore Family Fun Run!

The Fun Run will return on Bank Holiday Monday, 7th May 2018. Participants have the choice to complete either a 5k or 10k route around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in order to aid the Foundation’s support of vulnerable primary and secondary school pupils across Barking & Dagenham, Newham, Thurrock and Tower Hamlets.

The fundraiser is a fantastic opportunity to get the whole family active over the Bank Holiday weekend! Children and adults are welcome to get involved and raise money for their local community, either by running or walking the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park route alongside hundreds of like-minded individuals and families. 

As well as the walk or run, on the day there will be lots of fun for the whole family including inflatable penalty shootouts, face-painting, Bubbles the mascot and much more!

At the end of the journey each participant will receive a Moore Family Foundation goodie bag and participation (finishers) medal. There will be photo opportunities en-route and on a podium at the finishing line too!

Moore Family Foundation Founder Roberta Moore is excited for this year’s run and the support it gives to the charity:

“Following the success and growing support the Fun Run, we are all looking forward to this year’s event. We hope that as many as people as possible will join us in May and make it our best and most successful event. It is a great day for every member of the family with lots of atmosphere and camaraderie - there is so much to see and enjoy on the way round the course (including some cracking fancy dress outfits courtesy of some of the runners!) and all for such a great cause.”

There are some fantastic incentives for attendees on offer too!
