The 2015 Fun Run took place on Sunday 10th May. The weather was perfect for both running and walking and was supported by 286 participants. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the morning covering the distance of 10k (6 miles) through the magnificent Welbeck Estate. Some young people raised funds for their clubs through sponsorship and the charity gained much needed funds for the grant giving trust. This year the event was kindly sponsored by the Rotary Club of Worksop and the Worksop Dukeries Rotary Club. Support to the event was also given by staff from A1 Housing Services who helped with registration and the Worksop Army Cadets who took care of the comfort points on route. Everyone finished received a medal and trophies were given to the winner and runner up Junior and Senior Boy and Girl.

It is hoped that the Fun Run/Walk will take place again in 2016, a date will be confirmed later

The charity hosted a stableford competition at Kilton Forest Golf Course on the 13th June 2015 and received much support from many organisations within the area through entering a team or sponsoring a hole. All the prizes were kindly donated by local golf clubs.
