RUNNING TO KEEP DISC RUNNING - Volunteers running to raise cash for DISC!!

DISC is a community sports club and is run on a shoestring by a small committee of volunteers.  Sessions, equipment and coaches are funded by local grants and fundraising done by wonderful organisations and individuals who nominate us for their donations.

Last year, we were very lucky to have donations from Silson AC ( a local running club based in Silverstone) and Roger Clarke (chair of South Northants Council) and held several quiz nights at the Eastcote Arms. Our running costs are about£4-5000 a year and subscriptions cover less than half of this figure, so we fundraise to cover the difference to keep our subs low.

This year, two of our volunteers have chosen to run for DISC in May 2017- you may recognise them from our sports sessions!!  
On May 1st, Caroline will run the Milton Keynes Marathon (26.2 miles) and on May 7th, Steve will run "Wings for Life" near Cambridge where he will run against a car driven by David Coultard! The idea is to run until the car catches you!!! It sounds crazy... but Steve is hoping to run over 20 miles before the car catches him!!

They are both very proud to be wearing DISC shirts and would love your support on Gofundme - which is the club equivalent of Justgiving...please support us at:
