Charity of the Week: The Sussex Beacon

Run with #TeamBeacon in the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon 2017, and help The Sussex Beacon continue to provide specialist care and support for people living with HIV. 



In 2016 we had over 250 #TeamBeacon runners hit the start line of the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon, raising a record breaking amount of over £35,500 for The Sussex Beacon!

Running a half marathon is an incredible challenge, and running for a good cause gives you extra motivation to train and reach that finish line! The £150 we ask each Team Beacon runner to fundraise, allows The Sussex Beacon to continue providing our vital services which promote independence and improve health and wellbeing.

Our wonderful Team Beacon runners receive:

•    A technical Team Beacon running vest
•    Access to the primary positioned marquee by the start/finish line
•    Invitations to Team Beacon training runs in Brighton.
•    An invitation to a Team Beacon vest collection and social evening in Brighton
•    A Team Beacon fundraising pack.
•    Support and guidance from our challenge events fundraiser.
•    You will be a vital member of the biggest charity team at the race!
