A special thank you to everyone who took part in the Cardiff Half Marathon in aid of Dreams & Wishes.

This years race took place on Sunday 4th October and we had 50 runners taking part, all raising money for Dreams & Wishes. When you think that in 2013 we had 1 runner, this is fantastic support. In was amazing to watch all our runners wearing the Dreams & Wishes logo. We would also like to thank everyone who gave up their time on the day to both support the runners and make sure that Dreams & Wishes took centre stage on the route.

We are holding a thank you presentation night on Tuesday 20th October, where we will also collate all the sponsorship money. With this in mind we don’t have an accurate total but we expect the final figure to be around £5,000!

Tony Curtis MBE, our chairman commented: “I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone who completed the half marathon, all the traning was worth it! Every penny raised will go directly into funding the work of our amazing charity.”

It is down to this fantastic support that Dreams & Wishes can continue to grant wishes to seriously ill children.

For more information both on the run and how you could support our charity please drop us an email. We would love to hear from you.
