The event heads along Parkway, Essex Yeomanry Way, Chelmer Village Way on closed roads finishing at Anglia Ruskin University. There is an Instagrammable purple carpet finish, with entertainment on the course and a festival music stage at the event finish village.
The money you raise will support people like Veronica. Veronica is 82 years old and lives in the Southeast of England. She called our Helpline as she was struggling with rising electricity bills. Veronica was relying on extra jumpers when she was cold instead of turning on the heating, to keep down costs.
The Helpline helped Veronica to understand more about the money she was entitled to. Now, Veronica is receiving pension credit. This is a crucial top up for her income.
By fundraising for Independent Age, you will provide a support system for older people going through difficult times.
