Fundraising

As well as running, FIT2run members spend time fundraising and supporting charities.   Each year at the AGM a new charity is voted for by the club members.   Then throughout the year the FIT2run members hold many fundraising events to raise money for the chosen charity.

See below for more information about this years chosen Charity "The Baton" and previous years' charities.
