The Southside Six are happy to announce that we have paid our bills for this year and are in a position to donate a record £1,400 to charity.
For the second year in a row this is thanks to our first placed super veteran George Taylor, who has kindly donated £500 to be added to our contribution.
George is one of the few who have run all five years of The Southside Six – holding the Veteran course record between 2011 and 2013.
Of this year’s donation, he says:
“The main reason for the donation this year is the friendship and support the run gives competitors. I’ve had what is best described as a difficult year and nearly didn’t run. The decision to run proved to be the correct one and I want to thank the organisers, volunteers, runners and supporters”.
Funding Neuro will be the main beneficiaries, with a cheque for £900 making it’s way to them. Funding Neuro have been a great help to The Southside Six; providing goodies for the race pack, helping with transport logistics and organising the marshals of Pollok Park.
We are also donating £500 to The Teenage Cancer Trust who are the chosen charity of George.
Thanks again to all who took part in this year’s event, whether running, supporting or volunteering. It is only with the help of everyone involved that we are able to make The Southside Six a success.
