Scarborough’s Brunswick Centre is to host a special Leap Year Day event to help Saint Catherine’s raise extra cash towards patient care.
The event, on Saturday February 29, will see the Brunswick brought to life with a range of fun and fundraising activities for all ages.
Fashion brand Sik Silk, of Scarborough, will be holding a sample sale from 9am – the biggest ever sample sale to date – with a percentage from sales going towards Saint Catherine’s.
As the Brunswick is celebrating its 30th birthday, the event will feature two fun runs for youngsters, each consisting of 30 laps of the centre. These will take place at 10am and 2pm.
Local fitness company and gym operator ChrisFit Gym & Studio is organising all the sporting activities on the day.
Just a small donation is required to enter the fun runs and your child will receive a limited edition T-shirt. Register with ChrisFit Gym & Studio.
A team of runners on treadmills will be running from 9am to 5pm to raise money. And, in the ChrisFit coaches burpee challenge, for every 50p donated, a coach of your choice will have to do one burpee!
