Registration is open now for this year’s Eastbourne Santa Fun Run and Walk on Sunday December 7 at 1.30pm.
Last year saw 350 santas “jingling all the way” along the seafront from the Sovereign Centre to Holywell Tea Chalet, a distance of three miles, where all finishers were rewarded with a hot drink and mince pie.
More than £15,000 was raised for the vital work of Myaware, the new name for the charity formerly known as the Myasthenia Gravis Association.
Organisers are hoping for a new record this year. All participants this year will get their very own five piece Santa suit including beard to wear on the day and keep.
To take part call Steve on 01273 581087.
Myasthenia Gravis is a rare, neuro-muscular condition that affects about 10,000 people in the UK. There is no existing cure and control by medication is the best that can be done. Myaware is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting people diagnosed with MG and with Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome. As well as providing help to Myasthenics and their families, friends and carers, Myaware also works to raise awareness of this disease among the public and the medical professions, and raises funds for research into finding a cure.
