Local good cause the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust is the official charity partner of the 2019 Air Products Worcester City Runs. The trust has fielded fundraising runners in the races in recent years and hopes to raise even more money this year. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was founded by Jennifer Kelly in memory of her four-year-old daughter Grace. The team at the trust works to raise awareness, fund research into rare cancers of childhood and produce educational materials. The trust also provides support to families of children with cancer.
Jennifer Kelly of the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust, adds: “We are excited that the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust has been selected to be the official charity partner for the Air Products Worcester City Runs. We have hugely enjoyed being part of this fantastic event for the last two years and we would like to thank the Events of the North Team for giving us this opportunity.
“By becoming the charity partner, we aim to help raise further awareness of our efforts to fight childhood cancer both locally and nationally, as well as raising funds to help us continue our work. We work to fund research into childhood cancers, teach the signs and symptoms to look for, and provide support to families at the time they need it most. We would love people to join our team to see how many ladybird runners we can have out on the course this year.”
Steve Cram adds: “We’re delighted to welcome the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust as our official charity partner. The trust is doing an amazing job of raising awareness of childhood cancer and improving education about the symptoms, to help earlier diagnosis and treatment. We look forward to working with Jennifer and the team to highlight their work and help them recruit fundraisers to run in Worcester on 14 and 15 September.”
