York Samaritans are running the Yorkshire Corporate Relay Marathon 2021 to raise funds so that we can continue our valuable work.
Following our hugely successful first foray into marathon running in 2019, York Samaritans have once again decided to take on the challenge and have entered three teams of volunteers to run in the Yorkshire Corporate Relay Marathon on Sunday 17th October 2021.
As well as their listening duties they are finding time for intensive training so watch out!!!
Diana Gibbon York Samaritans Branch Director Commented:
"We are really proud of the 18 York branch volunteers who are running the Yorkshire Corporate Relay Marathon to raise funds for York Samaritans to continue our valuable work. Samaritans take 5 million calls per year supporting people in distress"
Please give us your support if you can by donating to our money giving page.
Pop down on the day and cheer them on as they rush past in Samaritans Green Vests.
Samaritans support everyone, and Samaritans volunteers are everyone, and our running group is about supporting each other, and, showing others we’re just like them. We hope this will encourage people to use our service, and ensure Samaritans mission seeps into everyday lives…We're taking on the (26.2-mile) York marathon together, 18 volunteers in 3 teams of 6, to be seen in the streets of York so people know we're here to listen.
