The organisers of the JCP Swansea Half Marathon have launched a community fund that is aimed at encouraging and retaining young people in sport. The fund, Leave More Than A Footprint, has been created primarily through the generous donations of the entrants to the JCP Swansea Half Marathon over the last 2 races.
Managing Director, David Martin-Jewell said:
“With the impact the race has on the City, we wanted to give something back to the communities that support us with every race and this fund will hopefully go some way towards repaying that support. The fund is aimed at under 18’s who require financial assistance to remain or continue in sport. We have a committee in place to oversee and manage the fund and we can’t wait to make our first awards following this year’s JCP Swansea Half Marathon.”
Applications are now OPEN for both individual and group/clubs to apply to cover costs for equipment, sports lessons, training and much more. Beneficiaries must be 18 years or younger on 1st July 2018 to apply for funding.
To apply for a grant simply head to www.swanseahalfmarathon.co.uk/community-fund/, download an application form and return it to Front Runner Events.
