Henry Green, Commercial Director of Covers Timber and Builders Merchant who are sponsoring the Chichester Half Marathon on Sunday October 14th 2012 is already in training to run it himself.
The 'Chi Half' is a challenging yet beautiful half marathon through Chichester city centre and the South Downs that aims to raise vital funds for our work with overlooked children living on the edges of society.
Henry said: 'This is a great local event and we are proud to be sponsoring Children on the Edge,
the Chichester based international children's charity as well as running in the event myself’.
By paying an entry fee and running the ‘Chi half’ entrants will already be helping our projects where a little money really can go a long way in the places where we work. Just £5 can provide a hot lunch for 10 children for 1 week in our Learning Centres in Bangladesh. The marathon will be a fantastic way to raise funds to continue this and many other vital projects.
Covers joins other local firms supporting the Chichester Half Marathon: Montezuma's, Store Property, Fitness First, Henry Adams, Evans Weir and Carte Blanche.
