Safe and Sound are now an Associate Charity for the 2017 Derby Ramathon for the first time.
The annual running event, one of the flattest in the country, will see thousands of runners gather in the city to take part in the half marathon which will start and finish at Derby County’s Pride Park Stadium.
We have five free charity places if you would like to run to raise money for Safe and Sound. These will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We would ask that anyone applying to run for us commits to raising a minimum of £200.
Please fill in the following form to register your interest. If you have been successful in receiving a place, we will send you an information pack and your code to register your place on the Ramathon website.
We will help all of our runners by giving you opportunities to share your Ramathon training on our blog and social media to make you feel supported all the way. We know this is a big challenge for many and are so grateful to anyone who takes part.
The race takes place on Sunday 4th June 2017.
Here is how the money you raise can help:
£20 could pay for a new resource that will help raise awareness of sexual exploitation with a number of young people to help prevent those at risk from becoming victims
£50 could pay for an initial session of creative arts therapy for one young victim of abuse, which may help them on their road to recovery
£100 could provide a vulnerable young person with a series of one-to-one support sessions with a dedicated support worker to help reduce their risk
£500 could pay for an education session in a school to educate children and their parents about sexual exploitation and staying safe
£1000 could pay for a series of alternative therapeutic support sessions to one young person to help them to deal with the effects of exploitation and abuse
£2000 could provide one young person with specialist one-to-one support for up to a year
