Calling all runners! Raise cash for CPFT’s Head to Toe charity

Head to Toe, the official charity of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, has 40 places available for runners who want to take part in the Cambridge Half Marathon.

Every year thousands of entrants are attracted to a course which takes in some of the city’s most spectacular landmarks.

The public ballot for the run has now closed, but Head to Toe has places available for the first 40 people who sign up. 

Entrants will be asked to pay £30 for their place and commit to raising £300 for Head to Toe which supports projects which benefit patients, service-users, carers, and staff of CPFT.

Charity manager Hannah Wysocki said: “The Cambridge Half Marathon is always a fantastic event which attracts runners from across the country – and just as many more people cheer them on along the route.

“We are incredibly grateful to the organisers to have been offered these places, and now we want to fill them with people who will support Head to Toe and the work of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.

“Our staff have worked tirelessly throughout the Covid pandemic and this will be a great way for people to show their appreciation of everything they have done over the past year while helping us in our work to fund initiatives for them, or patients and service-users, and our carers.”

The Cambridge Half Marathon is taking place on Sunday, 17 October.

CPFT employs more than 4,000 staff who provide community physical healthcare for older people and those with long-term conditions, mental healthcare for children and adults, children’s health services in Peterborough, learning disability support and social care support.
