Lions Supported 10K Run Raises Funds For LIBRA


LIBRA supporter and Adur East Lions Club member, David Sluys recently enjoyed taking part in the annual East Grinstead 10K Run (EG10K).

Organised and supported by the East Grinstead Lions, volunteers from East Grinstead Triathlon Club and the East Grinstead Athletics Club, the popular event attracted many competitors. This year East Grinstead Lions are generously donating their funds raised to LIBRA. Meanwhile, Adur East Lions Club, alongside Club member Lion Richard Behling, kindly sponsored David £300 for taking part.

Lion David Sluys trained ahead of the event, making for a very good run on the day and he commented: “As the Lions South East District Childhood Cancer officer I was delighted to be able to take part in the 10K to help raise funds for LIBRA. It was well organised, friendly, and the conditions were ideal. Most of the race was off road which I enjoyed.

“Next year I hope to run with a team and raise more funds that will go on to benefit patients with blood cancers and blood disorders.”

LIBRA Chairman Andrew Lodge commented: “The EG10k was a great success and we are grateful to those who ran for LIBRA and everyone involved in the organisation of the event. All funds raised will go to our Going for Gold appeal with a target of £300,000.

“Now that events like this are back on the calendar, we hope other supporters will go on to take part in fun sponsored activities.”
