Brighton AC family’s Marathon Relay effort to support sick children

April 11, 2020

On Sunday 19th April Joe, Lara, George and Jenny Clayson will be running a family relay to raise money for Rockinghorse Children’s charity.

The postponement of the Brighton and London Marathons has hit many charities. George Clayson said: “The fundraising income of Rockinghorse has been severely depleted and yet children are still getting sick and with Covid-19 the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital needs our help more than ever.

“Emergency funding is needed for three projects; a portable lung function machine for children with cystic fibrosis, who are particularly at risk, parent camp beds for wards and additional mental health support for in patients at Chalk Hill Mental Health Unit in Haywards Heath.

“As a family we love running and together we decided on a family relay to cover the 26.2 miles. We’ll be sticking to social distancing guidelines and will start and finish at our house in Costa del Saltdean.”

The Family hope to raise £700 for Rockinghorse. George added: “We would love if what we’re doing encourages other families to run a marathon over the weekend. Rockinghorse does amazing work so let’s help them now.”
