Run the World Comes to Bermuda

Dan Thompson’s Run the World challenge is coming to Bermuda on Sunday 19 November – and everyone is invited to join him on his challenge run.

Thompson is currently attempting to run a 10 km in every country in the world – to date he has run in 126 countries out of a total of 206 (including the Solomon Islands, East Timor, Italy, Estonia, et al.) – and he is hoping that as many people as possible will join him for the Bermuda leg of his challenge for Cancer Research.

If you would like to join all or some of the run, then please meet at Bacardi International, Pitt’s Bay Road at 8:45 am on Sunday 19 November. Dan will begin his run before the start of the Bacardi 8K race. He will run an additional 2K loop into Hamilton and back. Please note that participation in the run is entirely at your own risk.

Thompson is doing the challenge to raise money for cancer research following the recent death of his mother from cancer and to promote the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle in the fight against cancer. Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research and its pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives around the world.

There is absolutely no obligation to donate but, if anyone would like to donate to Cancer Research at any stage, then they can either donate cash at the run or directly on Dan’s JustGiving page at https://www.justgiving..com/fundraising/Dan-Thompson11. Dan will collect any cash donated at the run and put it through his Justgiving page so that everyone can see where their donation has gone.

For more information contact Keith Smith at aspkms@yahoo.com for Swan’s Running Club.
