Team Maggie's headline Swansea Half for 2020

Wednesday 21 August

We are delighted to announce that we are the Headline Charity partner for the ‘JCP Swansea Half Marathon 2020’.

We have been a charity partner for the last two years, which has helped raise awareness and much needed funds for Maggie’s. As a local charity, Maggie’s Swansea relies solely on the generosity of our supporters to continue supporting people with cancer, their families and friends, across South West Wales.    

Tash Smith, Senior Events Co-ordinator at Front Runner Events said:

We  are  thrilled  to  announce  Maggie’s  as  our  platinum  charity  of  the  year. They  offer  a  wonderful  service  to  patients  and  their  families  and  hope  that  our Partnership will help them continue this great work for many years to come.  We have a  fantastic  relationship  with  the  team  at  Maggie’s  and  we  look  forward  to  developing this further over the next 12 months.

2019 saw the biggest turn out for Team Maggie’s with over 100 people signing up to run on our behalf.

We caught up with Luisa and her father (pictured above) to hear why they chose to support Maggie’s Swansea and run the JCP Swansea Half Marathon this year for #TeamMaggies.

Luisa said:

Myself and my father started running in September 2018, and we aimed to run a half marathon this year for a charity. When we seen the endless and wonderful work that Maggie’s does to support and help people with cancer, we decided to run the JCP Swansea Half Marathon in aid of them.

Throughout training and on the day, we had so much support from Maggie’s; from emails asking how our training was going, to waving flags on the streets and shouting and cheering our names, which inspired us to go on and not stop.   We raised a total of £612 and have never been so thrilled to hand this money over to this wonderful charity! Thank you Team Maggie’s!
