The Island will host a fundraising run as part of a national campaign, and everyone is invited to get involved.
On Sunday, March 23, The Sheppey Mile will take place along Sheerness seafront.
It is part of Sport Relief 2014, which raises money for Comic Relief to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world’s poorest countries.
Jake Davis, duty manager at Sheerness swimming pool, has organised the fundraiser after being contacted by the charity as there was nothing planned in the area.
There are three events for people to choose from – a six-mile run which will start at the pool at 10am; a three-mile one which will start at 10.30am, and a one-mile challenge which will start at 10.45am.
Anyone – adults and children – is welcome to join in and participants do not have to run – people can walk, jog or take part however they would like to.
“It’s a great opportunity to get the community together,” said 21-year-old Jake. It’s for a good cause.”
