Thank you Patrick
This Thursday, we would like to give a huge thank you to Patrick Gallagher who is taking on four of Britain’s hilliest marathons in eight weeks to help Al Madad Foundation raise money for the education activities we are involved in in Syria and Lebanon.
We hope our supporters will be able to offer their support and wish him well on his challenge.
Sponsorship will be gratefully accepted via https://www.justgiving.com/almadadmarathons
Without the tenacity and support of Patrick and those like him, we would be unable to continue our work. Thank you so much for all your help.
AL MADAD FUN DAY FUNDRAISER
We are very pleased to announce our summer fundraising event, which will take place on Saturday 6th June 2015 at the Athletics Stadium, Battersea Park Millennium Arena from 10am to 4.30pm.
How to Take Part!
As a team: Teams of five (two adults and three children) can sign up to take part in a 2k relay race and five additional activities that will test balance, skill, speed and team work. They will work as a collective, with a prize giving ceremony at the end of the day for the team that collects the most points.
As an individual: There will be an array of activities available and individuals can pre-buy tokens to use on the day to play their chosen games. This will give them the freedom to play games as many times as they wish, at their leisure, throughout the day.
As a spectator: Don't fancy the exertions of the games on hand? No worries! There will be lots of things aside from the sports and games for kids and adults alike to enjoy.
On Your Marks!
The showcase event of the day will be a 2km relay race between teams of five people. Each team member will cover one lap of the 400m track before handing the baton on to the next person. Friends and families can fill the trackside and surrounding stands and cheer the runners on to glory!!
Fun For All!
While athletic types will be able to leave it all on the track, the day will also be filled with slightly more leisurely pursuits. Adults and youngsters alike will be able to join in with traditional games that include egg and spoon racing, sack races, three legged racing, chicken relays and beanbag balancing. Everyone can take part and once scores have been tallied up, prizes will be given out during an awards ceremony at the end of the day.
Food and Drink in the Summer Sun!
There will be a range of food options available on the day. Ice cold drinks and a variety of snacks will all be up for grabs. Specific vendors on the day will be confirmed.
Something For Everyone!
The day will have something to suit every age and ability. In addition to the activities on the day there will also be face painting, performance story-telling, and lots more.
Fun In The City!
The Battersea Park Millennium Arena is centrally located and easily accessible from around the city. All events will take place within the stadium, meaning visitors can just relax and enjoy the fun.
