Get your family and friends together to Run the One

Run the One is a family friendly fun run taking place in Victoria Park, Worthing this summer.

At a mile long, this event is suitable for all the family, whatever your age,  everyone is welcome to join us. Whether you choose to walk, jog or run the mile, however you run the one, you’ll be supporting older people across the UK.

With creativity and support, fundraising can be fun and no sweat - you’ll sweat enough in training! Check out our fundraising ideas.

Why run for Independent Age?

More than 1 million older people say they are often or always lonely. As well as feeling cut off from friends and family, it can mean that when difficulties arise, they feel they have no one to turn to.

Your support can make such a difference for an older person, because thanks to our supporters, we can provide regular visits and telephone calls from one of our caring volunteers. We can also help with worries they might be facing whether they’re about finances, mobility, or other day-to-day issues, so they don’t have to cope with difficulties alone.
