Even Superheroes need a year off...
We hope you have all had a great summer and that life is treating you well. We are contacting you to let you know that, after 13 years of consecutive HEROES RUN's we are having a year off in 2017. As a small group of volunteers, this decision is motivated by nothing more than simply needing a break. As much as we love the build up to the May run each year, it does demand a lot from us in both time and energy. We all have big years ahead of ourselves both personally and professionally in 2017 and the last thing we want to do is organise another race that does not get the attention it deserves.
So, there will be no HEROES RUN event in 2017. This is not the end of the event, it is merely what I hope you will agree is a well earned breather.
Beyond the run however we will still be updating you on our education projects in Africa as they progress. We are about to fund the third and final phase of the Nyantonzi school build in Uganda in December and we also have some very exciting news coming in the next month or so about new ways your heroic fundraising will be used to give children the chance of an education in 2017 and beyond.
For now, we hope you understand the decision we have made and look forward to sharing news of the massive positive difference you have all made very soon.
