Downham Market fundraiser to take on #Cardio4Xmas challenge in aid of Shelter
A Downham member of the Armed Forces is undertaking a fundraising challenge in the run-up to Christmas to raise funds for a homeless charity company.
Cieron Scriven is running 325km in December, which will culminate with her completing a 25km run before her dinner on Christmas Day.
She is raising funds for Shelter, a national charity which supports people at risk of homelessness.
Cieron said: “Christmas and winter are a poignant time for those that are homeless or struggling to provide a roof over the heads of their loved ones.
“With the pressure of Covid-19, this has made the issue ever present and even more difficult for not only families, but also individuals.”
Her challenge, known as #Cardio4Xmas, would have seen members of the Armed Forces commit to a night out on the streets to experience the struggles of being homeless in normal circumstances.
But due to the pandemic, fundraisers are taking on individual challenges this year.
To visit Cieron’s fundraising page, go to www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cardio4xmas where a target of £500 has been set.
She will be posting updates on her social media pages.
