More than £75,000 have been raised for communal charities at the Maccabi GB’s first ever virtual fun run last month.
Hundreds of participants were given the options of tackling a distance of either 1km, 5km or 10 km, at home or a local park to raise funds for more than 50 charities on 24 May.
Maccabi GB chair David Pinnick said: “It is quite incredible to see that over £75,000 to date has been raised via our event. If you think that at last year’s physical event at Allianz Park raised £200,000 by 80 charities, it just shows the extent of the community spirit during these unprecedented times. I know this will assist charities through the tough times we are all facing.”
