We are delighted to announce that we will be supporting one nominated charity for the whole of 2024, Winston’s Wish.

Winston’s Wish is a charity that helps children, teenagers, and young adults (up to the age of 25) find their feet when their worlds are turned upside down by grief. Through information, on-demand services, bereavement support and counselling, they support young people to understand their feelings, process their grief and find ways to move forward with hope for a brighter future. They also help the adults who are caring for young grieving people including parents, school staff and healthcare professionals. 

Scumrun 2024 Fundraising Information

There will be a fundraising league table for entrants of the May/September events (or both) and entrants will join the league.  Top fundraisers will have the opportunity to win some excellent prizes.  Prize winners will be announced at the end of the year so there’s LOADS of time to fundraise depending on when you enter.  The charity will support all entered teams with fundraising ideas and help you to raise as much as you want to, and feel you can.  The cause really is an important one so we hope everyone dives headfirst into the fundraising as it’s an opportunity to make a massive difference; after all, that’s what Scumrun is all about.  If you enter, your contact details will be passed to the charity so they can contact you directly and support you with fundraising efforts.
